Question about 1990 Ford Mustang
Car will roll while in gear and not running
I am assuming this is an automatic transmission? It is possible your shifter cable or linkage got knocked out of adjustment but most likely the "Park "pawl has either come loose or is broken. It is a lever with a hook like shape that engages into a slotted ring at the output of the transmission.
Heavy duty trucks with Allison automatic transmissions do not have Park on the shifter because the "park pawl" couldn't handle the stress from the heavy loads twisting the driveshaft. Always set your park brake, even on level ground on all cars & trucks with automatic transmissions.
I hope it is just a shifter adjustment otherwise the transmission will have to be removed, disassembled, park pawl replaced.
