Comment 1
nope the car just rolls or goes into reverse will not stay .also i have to put car in nutral to start it up because of this -
Answer 2
I have seen two things cause this concern: 1. A broken shift cable (the outer plastic sheath) 2. The shift column lever where it attaches to the cable under the dash could be loose. I have seen the torx bolts loosen up or fall out. Either of the concerns make the shift mechanism very loose preventing the trans to be shifted into park. -
