Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring
My car rolls in park. I've been told to replace the transmission, and then I was told it was the parking pawl. does this mean the transmission is going bad? The parking brake doesn't hold it in park either (needs to be replaced)
The Parking Pawl is internal of the Transmission and the Transmission must be removed to do this repair. Someone put the car into PARK when it was not at a COMPLETE STOP.
The Parking Brake can be adjusted or you can have the REAR BRAKES redone and have them properly adjust the Parking Brakes.

Your linkage must be out of adjustment......or a bad tranny.

You may want to revisit those rear brakes to make sure the parking brake linkage is hooked up properly. There is usually a spring that needs to go over the parking brake linkage and make sure the cross bar is facing the right direction and holds both the shoes and the parking brake linkage.

You need to remove the trans pan to inspect the parking pawl and rod. Hopefully you can adjust or repair with trans in your vehicle.
Also don't assume your cable etc is okey. You don't know that. You may be able to adjust it and be okey.
