Shifting Out of Park Position


spaclear.gif A simple procedure to prevent being jammed in PARK on a grade:
  1. Do not put it in PARK until, with foot brake applied, you've secured the parking (emergency) brake.

  2. Before releasing the parking brake, apply the foot brake and move the shift lever to NEUTRAL or DRIVE.

Chevy shifts hard

The cable might be worn and frayed when the cable gets near the park position. You might need to replace the cable or check the linkage on the transmission.

Tansmission kicks in gear hard

change the fluid and filter to ensure oil flow inside the transmission, if the problem persists, check and adjust the kickdown cable, hope this helps, let me know.

99 Ford Windstar:

either the linkage is dry, needs lubed up, or the wiper motor is shot. more than likely it is the linkage just needs lubed up. WD-40 works great!

Remove insrument cluster

This isn't too hard, but does take a while. Turn the car off & disconnect the battery. Set some blocks on the wheels. Turn the ignition on, and move the shift lever all the way to the right (low gear). Then, remove the screws from all the dash trim and (carefully!!!) pull it away - there might be some snap locks also, you don't wanna break those! After that, the panel comes out just by removing some screws. You disconnect the speedometer cable and the small string going to the gear indicator (again, be careful!!)
