I cannot get my suburban to shift back into park and engage the transmission park brake I had changed the trans fluid and filter and had to take off the shift cable bracket to get to the bolts. After reinstalling the bracket and cable I can't get it to shift fully into park.

    you need to have your manual shift linkage adjusted, maybe upon removal the linkage became shorter or longer and now the parking pawl inside the transmission won't engage, best to have a trans tech adjust this as the book time to adjust the cable is .6 of an hour
