    Shifter rattling

    Getting a rattling sound from my shifter, mostly while cruising in 4th. Noise stops when you put your hand on the shifter... shifter bushings???

    Sounds very much like when you have a lot of loose change in the ashtray.

    The linkage was just loose. Took it in and they tightened everything up. I was pretty convinced it was the bushing... shows how much I know

    Meh. I would've guessed the BOV, but that's just me.

    The only way I'll ever fix anything on my car, unless it's REALLY easy, is take it in.
    Unless of course, I become Tim the Toolman Taylor...which won't happen.

    It takes about 10 seconds. You pop the trim around the shifter off (the whole plastic piece. Search for the walkthrough to install a new head unit, if you've never taken it off), and the shift linkage is the grey bar that splits and attaches to the shifter in a Y.

    You need a pair of wrenches to tighten it. That's literally all it takes.
