Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
I have a 97 chevy malibu.My problem is that when the car is cold I can not take it out of park for 5-10 mins. or until the car is warm.According to the owners manual if I put the ign.switch in the Acc position with the brake on and after playing with the gear shift,it will come out of park.Is there some kind of sensor that needs to be replaced to take care of this problem?
Problem with 04 malibu. Hard to take car out of park.

A lot of the Malibu and Impalas have a problem with the shifter locking in park. From seeing some repaired, the center console was taken out and a harness/switch had to be replaced. This has happened twice with my grandmothers car and finally had someone that knew about the problems to fix it. The price to fix hers was approx $300
