shift linkage

hey guys , my 96 is starting to give me an issue 7.3 2wd ccsb auto 212k , the problem seems to be in the shifter or shift linkage? it is loose, it has happened a few times so thought id better start asking before I get stranded , (I could have started 10 times without a hitch then bam ) The issue is ill get in truck and turn key to cycle glow plugs ,then finish the start cycle and nothing , no start ,then I mess with shifter and it starts up , gave me a hard time the other night its just out of no where , I couldn't get it to start and push pulled shifter and nothing ,I hit the sweet spot and it started , now today after oil change it did it again ,and could not find the sweet spot, but when key was turned I pulled shifter out and into N and it started ,
Is there an adjustment that can be made to tighten up the shift linkage and or eliminate the problem of no power or contact in park ? any input would be appreciated -thanks

It took about halfway through your post to determine that you're talking about the AUTOMATIC shift linkage. It's actually a cable. The most likely culprit is that the shifter itself is loose in the column. Slide under there and look for a couple of allen head screws that hold the shifter in place. There's a pic in one of the galleries in one of the truck forums. Anyway, see if those screws are loose and tighten them down if they are.

The other possibility is that the switch down on the tranny is out of adjustment. But if it starts in Neutral, the loose shifter is the more likely suspect.
