I think you are saying the vehicle pulls forward,no matter what gear you put the shifter in?If this is the case,there is a problem with the forward clutch.I've seen this one over and over in many different transmissions and vehicles.The forward clutch pack is always applied whenever the vehicle is moving forward.It is never applied in reverse,or neutral.So,the forward clutch pack loses clearance from normal wear and tear,or a seal in the pack goes bad,and the clutches start slipping....and slipping........still slipping.....until they get SO hot,the clutch plates and steel plates fuse together,are welded together.This is why your Millenia is going forward in reverse and neutral.It's either that or you have a problem with the shifter cable,or linkage,and you didn't mention anything about the detents,or not being able to obtain Park,so i assume all that is ok

1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.


Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.


It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.
