Long story short I have a vortech th400 89 fox. Car use to shift perfectly but now i have to play with it to get it in reverse and for some reason im missing a gear at wot. I found the shifter cable lying on the exhaust and remounted it to the chassis but now i can see the metal through the cable. Does it sound like this could be the problem and could someone break it down to me step by step on how to test the cable? This is my first auto so Im a little green and dont want to buy a new part even tho the cable "looks" bad.
