1995 Ford Explorer Question: Transmission Shift Linkage

Automatic transmission, 4x4. Shifter is loose, linkage on side of transmission can be moved by hand. Selector doesn't go all the way to park; sometimes when trying to park it will not set in and will roll while making a "thunk-thunk-thunk" noise from the transmission. Do I need to replace the entire assembly, from column up to and including shift linkage, or is there a way I can tighten the cable? -
Answer 1
This is hard to know without seeing it, you need to figure out why it is loose. Is the cable housing secured properly at both ends? -
Comment 1
I can't tell about the gear selector side without pulling the dash off, but the trans-end is secure. -
