Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
I have a 2004 cavalier with an automatic transmission. Recently, when I tried to put the car in Park, the lever would not go into Park. I found that the knob on the lever was a little loose. I finally got it to go into Park after pushing down on the knob and jiggling it. Later, I had the same problem when I was trying to get the car out of Park. I think the problem is with the shifting lever and not the transmission. Am I right?
If the problem is the knob, is there a way I could fix it instead of taking it to a shop?
To check this out you must remove the shift handle by using a butter knife to remove a horseshoe clip facing the very front of the handles shank. Then remove the shifter plate to check the cables

The body control module (BCM)
The powertrain control module (PCM)
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid receives a ground from the BCM. When the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is energized, the shift lever mechanically locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the PCM sends a class 2 serial data message to the BCM. The BCM turns OFF the ground control circuit and this de-energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. When the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is de-energized, the shift lever may be moved out of the PARK position. The BCM determines transaxle shift lever position through a class 2 serial data message from the PCM. The PCM receives inputs from the park/neutral position switch and determines shift lever position. When the BCM receives this information and determines that the shift lever is out of the PARK position, the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid ground is opened.
