SHIFTER LEVER AND CABLE

1998 Dodge Neon

Transmission problem
1998 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 21,240 miles

I removed the throttle and the shifter bracket to clean off the rust and corrosion and when I lefted the throttle bracket off the shirter lever came up some out of the transmission and I need to know how to put back in place and reset it so the shifter and throttle work properly. Would you have a step by step and pictorial showing the inside of the trans so when I drop the trans pan and if needed the valve body Ill know exactly how and what to do or a link showing all this? Thank You AL
