Confused? If it won't get out of park how do you get it into other gears?

Best Answer Mark helpful

The shifter and linkage go through the gears but the transmission doesnt


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?
