You are most likely going to find some worn plastic bushings in the shift linkage or possibly a lose arm where the arm connects to the transmission. Someone just has to watch the linkage as it is operated to locate and replace/tighten the loose/worn parts.
Good Luck

Why won't my 96 buick go forward or backwards


Well i would first check trans fluid in park with motor running. If fluid is good in color i mean red or a little dark then i would then check if it rolls in park the reason for that is to see if you had a axle pop out. Now if it holds in park your axle is fine. Next is the possibility of a bad transmission you may have broken the pump. One way to confirm is to disconnect one of the cooler lines and see if there is fluid pressure now this is dangerous and messy so i would recommend a shop to do this.

My 96 achieva will start but i cant shift it out of park


under the dash if you look, press the brake pedal with your hand.. you will see the brake pedal push a button, that switch is bad.. when you push the brake, and it pushes that button, that button unlocks the shift selector, replace that switch and your good to go. hope this helps.
