T_S_T I think she means the shifter moves, goes in gear, but transmission stays in Park. Correct me if I'm wrong Angela...? In that case, the linkage has come apart.

I'm having the same problem, my shifter moves but wont go into another gear other than neutral. Do you think this is the linkage too?

I have a major problem folks.. I got 68's cadillac and i broke the gear stick the moves from P to R and N or D .. So I tried so hard to move it with my hand but it wont .. Can someone explain for me wat to please!

I recently had the exact problem that Angela posted. None of the above answers will correct the problem, but I have the correct one after hours of research and it's simple fix. You must Take the pan off the bottom of the transmission; realize your fluid will dump btw.. then remove the filter. Behind the filter there is a manual shifting rod about the size of a pencil, that is held in place by a plastic retainer, which wears out over time and allows the rod to drop out of place. I used a small aluminum shim to spread the retainer apart and thus tightens its ability to hold the rod in place. Push the rod back in place and replace the filter; pan and new fluid, cleaning the pan carefully should be done as this is a great time to change the fluid. Note "If the Park still works and holds but only shifts into "neutral" this is your problem See Pic

I should have added "the light will continue to show its still in Park"...even tho the shifter moves freely and tranny goes into Neutral allowing the car to roll freely" until moving the shifter lever back into the actual Park position....the rod above connects the manual valve/IMS.
