Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
This problem could be caused by a few things, first I would check the shift cable (most common) by disconnecting it from the transmission range sensor (on transmission), and from the ball stud on the steering column. Then have an assistant push one end of the cable fully foward and hold firmly. You then push on the other end making sure no spongyness is present. the cable should feel solid, then have your assistant let go and manually pull cable in and out, should be smooth with no binding, if binding or spongyness is present replace cable. Second, the bracket with the ball stud on the steering column is attached with 3 gold colored bolts that require a t-30 torx socket. These tend to come loose and does not allow the cable to completely be pushed into the park position, so by rocking the truck, the shift bracket is forced into park. make sure these bolts are tight. You might have to put the shift lever in the low position to see these bolts. Third, the cable might require adjustment due to the locking tab at the transmission range sensor not completely locked.
