shifter wont pull out of gear but will push into park on 1997 Ford Taurus

I have a 97 ford taurus,My shifter will move but it wont pull out of park. If i manually change gears under the hood i can use the shifter to push it back into park. I think it may be the cable but im still clueless. Any one know where to get the schematics or diagram of the linkage, or the cable. please some one help.

the shifter hooks to a line that connects to a shift selecter on the trans. It is held in place by a cheap connector ... look and see if the line is connected. Cheapest way is to pick up a chiltons or hays repair manual which included pics. ... look under trans removal and u will find a pic of the shifter line. (also make sure u have enough fluid in the trans .. that will prevent shifting too.
