column shifting very difficult to get out of park.
seems to be getting worse as time goes by. Not used a lot (at college out of state)on a daily basis but has us concerned it may lock up.
Check your transmission mounts~
Ditto on the mounts, but you also might try lubing the linkage at the steering column. I've seen a lot of Fords break the lug off the shift tube. Also check where you park, if there is a slight incline you could be putting extra load on the park pawl in the transmission and that will make it hard to get it out of park. If there is an incline then park as usual but instead of putting it into park set the park brake first then put trans into park, On start up put your foot on the brake and put it into drive or reverse depending on which way you have to go then release the park brake. Only use the park brake in weather that is above freezing, I have seen park brakes freeze when wet. If you get freezing temps would recommend that you get some wheel chocks and use them during cold weather. Hope this helps.
Check your cad mounts. If it is sinking in the rear of the cab, The linkage will bind. Look at the truck and see if the cab is evan with the box
