I'm not trans guy, but in ones took apart there is usually a pin that engages for park. If that's the case I don't believe there's an easy way to fix it...sorry! That being said call a few trans places tell them whats going on and see what they say, how much to fix, etc, but make sure u trust them. Because of age of car it may not be worth to rebuild. Maybe swap with junkyard trans but than you don't know what u get. Wait and see what other guru guys say?
