Front Derailleur problem?

I'm having a difficult time adjusting a front derailleur with a Sram Mrx shiftier.
I can only get 2 gears to change It's either too tight or too loose?
can someone point out a good video to watch in adjusting cable / indexing.
thanks.

Try these at Park Tool. Sometimes they ham it up to much, but Calvin seems to always give good information.

You can find all sorts of decent information and videos at the Park Tool website.

A little bit more information about your bike, it's components and what the issue is might let some of us try to guess what might help you or fix the issue.

You must mean a SRAM MRX twist shifter, right?
