The shifter doesn't even move I was told that it may need a master flush for the air left in the brakes but I was hoping for an easier cheaper solution since I usually work on my own cars to save money

Air in brake lines not going to keep from shifting. Check brake pedal switch. Need to know column or floor shift?

Its a floor shifter its in the middle console. We attached the metal rod to the brake pedal and everything seems to be attached correctly.

Okay so we fiddled around with the metal rod to the brake pedal and it engages now kind of we have to find a sweet spot on the brakes when pushed. Anyway we can get it to shift into gear more smoothly or will this work itself out? Thank you so much by the way.
