My '93 Subaru Impreza locks up in park sometimes. I read that it can be a problem. Right now I cannot get it out of park. How is it fixed?


Asked by Apr 17, 2013 at 06:41 PM about the 1993 Subaru Impreza

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It happened occasionally if I turned the car off with the wheels turned kind of hard.  But it
always resolved after a couple of tries.  Now it's been like that for two days and numerous
tries.  Help

1 Answer


Bent linkage now if it was forced. Bent or Burred up park pin or it's receptacle slots. Try push/pulling car forward and backwards and tacking it out of park at the same time.
