the shifter wont move out of park, or the trans wont shift out of park? if its the trans i'd say the trans solenoid pack is toast. i take it you already checked the fluid?

I have since been told that it will move out of park, but it will not go into reverse or drive.


I have been told by a couple others that it might be the shifter linkage

I agree my camaro had the same problem i would try adjusting the linkage first

Forward planetary,clutch pack is destroyed, new trans is needed
