Find the linkage under the dash. follow it from under the steering column and you should find a loose screw under there. To be on the safe side, make sure engine is off while you moving the shifter! Good Luck.

Gear shift rebuilt now my car won't go into park....


generally the first place I would look is under the hood at the linkage on the transmission. it's has a lever with a bracket for the cable.generally the hard shifting is due to a poor adjustment where the lever does not travel as far as it should. first step is to remove the cable from the shifter bar. then move the shifter bar to the park position manually. you will notice you will have to loosen the jam nut for the cable this will allow you to move the cable into the right adjustment. once you have done the adjustment tighten down the jam nut and rehook the cable to the shifter bar you will find that you can shift into park more easily... please rate
