my merucry mystique dont shift gears fast
I believe the owner's manual specifies that there is a screw on the side of the shifter that can be turned (via screwdriver) to override the shift lock mechanism.
It's below the gear selector lock button on the automatic transmission cosole shift

The engine doesn't shift.
it's your usual 1st gear top left lay out. From 1st pull straight down into 2nd, up into 3rd down into 4th, up into 5th. On most mystique's you must pull up a ring on the shifter in order to get into reverse which is the bottom right of the pattern.
MY 98 HAD A BROKEN CLIP ON FORWARD CLUTCH VALVE SPOOL IN VALVE BODY
The throttle cable and shift cable on a 1984 40 HP Mercury outboard engine is installed by raising the access panel and locating the appropriate connectors. Each cable is then attached to the engine to control its speed and gearing.
Shift solenoids are inside the transmission.
Check the stop lights - shift interlock is usually the same circuit - check fuse Move the ignition switch to 1st position (unlock) with engine off - then shift to neutral to start vehicle and then you will be able to shift to "D or R"
When driving a stick shift, you shift up as the engine begins to rev in each gear. You will downshift as the engine begins to slow.
