My 1995 chevy Silverado 5.7 l 1500 won't shift to park

I'm guessing this is an automatic. You should be able to adjust the linkage unless yours has the electronic shift on it

Want ****.

Try this. Disconnect the transmission linkage under the hood at the
colum. Now try moving the shift lever,if it functions normaly,check the
linkage from the colum to the transmission to see if it is bent or bound up. If you still can't shift with the linkage disconnected,the problem is
inside the colum. The easiest fix is to get a used colum.
If you have a cable. Disconnect it at the transmission first. if it still won't
shift, disconnect the cable at the colum. If it shifts, replace the cable.
If not. You're back to replacing the colum. In either case, block the wheels, and make sure the linkage connection at the transmission moves freely. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My truck is 1995 chevy 1500 v8 the shifter will move but wont shift

If it is a standard shift the shift linkage is broken and must be repaired. Get a Haynes repair manual it will walk you through step by step exactly how to disassemble the shifter linkage there is not enough room on this forum to give you the info.

Faulty shift/ignition control?

Todd, Over time, shift linkages and cables tend to stretch or develop some "slack" in the system which can cause this type of problem. I would suggest readjusting the linkage and see if that takes care of the problem.
1) On level ground, block the wheels to prevent rolling.
2) Place the shift lever in neutral.
3) Loosen fastener at transmission select lever and allow linkage to relax or find center.
4) Turn key to start position to verify transmission is in neutral, engine should roll over, no need to start engine. Shut engine off if started.
5)Center linkage at transmission select lever and tighten fastener.
6) Recheck Park position, readjust if necessary.
Good luck, let me know how it goes.
