why won't my car start start unless i push the gear shift forward, is there a safety sensor that needs to be replaced or adjusted?
Likely the problem is with the neutral safety switch. I am not certain where it is located on your car. Could just need an adjustment or replacement.
I have to push it forward in park? still the neutral safety switch?
Yes, the neutral safety switch prevents the vehicle from starting in gear. It has to be in either Park or Neutral to start. There of course could be other issues, but the neutral safety switch is the place to start.
