update .super easy fix .pull neutral safety switch ,then side cover under neutral safety switch ,then go to other side remove shift lever being careful not to lose detent ball . shove control valve out towards the side where the neutral safety switch was , replace o-ring push control valve back in and put it back together ,done . i got my o-ring from the local auto parts store ,29 cents

Great! Glad it was an easy fix. From what I've read, this'd is a common issue. Next on my list is pulling transmission to replace front pump seal......
