SOURCE: loud clicking noise which the clicking noise getss faster as i accelerate

From what you are describing it sounds like it must be a valve lifter sticking. Try putting a cup of transmission oil in your crankcase, or pick up some suitable additive from your local parts store. I wish i could hear it and give you a better idea. Maybe let them listen to it at the parts store, and they can determine if it's a lifter or not. Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: charger won't shift out of park ...park lock

http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/1028.htm I know this is late but I had the same problem. The release wouldn't work either. I had to remove the shifter and take the cover off. A spring broke off the pink lever in the front of the shifter. The shifter would move side to side but couldn't be pulled back. The above link sells a replacement part that might work. Thanks to petevpi.

SOURCE: MY GEAR SHIFT WILL NOT MOVE OUT OF PARK ON MY 06 DODGE CHARGER

The Dodge Magnum and Charger shifters are having issues that result in being unable to shift from park.
There is a small plastic cog in the gear shift assembly that ends up going bad... if this is the case for you, you are not alone.
The dealer's remedy is to replace the ENTIRE shift assembly because they don't sell parts for it.
There is a company called "Billet technologies" and they sell a metal machined replacement part and they have links to illustrated replacement of the part. It does involve taking the console apart, and part of the radio bezel out of the car.
It's involved but it can be done... I recommend checking for any warranty first, then if you feel daring, you can order the part and have at it.
I personally own a 05 Magnum and the shifter is sticking now and then. We shut the car off and restart and sometimes it releases. I'm going to spray lube down the openings of the shifter to keep things freed up until I can replace the cog inside.
Hope this helps...

1994 Buick LeSabre has clicking noise in steering column when reversing.


Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.

Car won't shift from neutral to park


replacing transmission?????nonsence!!! i can tell this is an automatic trans setup, not standard. lets start here. put car in PARK and turn key on so the dash comes on. do not start car. step on the brake pedal several times slowly and listen for audible sound coming from the shifter area. you should hear clicking sound everytime yo uhit the brake. that is the shift lock solenoid releasing the mechanism indside of the shifter assembly so you can get the car out of park and into gear. you may have an issue with the shifter assembly it self. if no clicking sound is heard, it will need to be diagnosed fruther. the solenoid can not be purhcsed separatelly. shifter assembly only. start with the listening procedure and let me know.

I get a clicking from the gesr shift area when I apply or release the foot brake


This is normal when gear shift is in park. When footbrake is depressed a mechanism in the J gate releases the gear shift so that it can be shifted out of the park position. The clicking noise is is the sound of the mechanism.

No break light, can not shift gear.


your brake light switch has failed. this will also allow you to shift out of park when you hit the brake pedal. when you hit the brake pedal the brake light should come on and the shift interlock solenoid will activate(you might hear a clicking sound under the dash or near the shift handle) allowing you to shift out of park.

Sometimes when I put the gear shift in park the vehicle will roll making a clicking noise, then i put it back in park and it holds o.k.???can you help me by identifying the problem???


The noise is the tooth engaging your parking dog in the trans. think of a big gear with square teeth and a plunger that fits into the valley of the gear. not always does the plunger hit the valley so when you roll a little it comes off the high point and settles where it belongs
