pull hard..mine does the same thing..thinking about taking some sandpaper and sanding the cap a bit. May have swelled up over the years with all the oil and heat

Turn it all the way till it stops, then turn it back a little bit.

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I recently had the same problem, used a towel to cover it while I turned to help get a getter grip. Then I used a green scotch pad to clean it. When done I sprayed it with silicon spray and it's fine now.
