I just got this car a few weeks ago and we backed it off the trailer pulled it into my driveway and I couldn't get it in park. Thinking maybe the shifter was out of adjustment I took off the cable and moved the trans arm and it moved very freely. So I thought it just wasn't going to go into park, so I pushed it a little harder and it like clicked into park. The shifter turned out to be adjusted fine. So I hooked everything back up and now it goes into park no problems at all, BUT when I put it in any other gear there is nothing there. I can push the car when it is in anything other than park. When it is running it won't move at all. I really know nothing about an automatic at all. So any help would be great.

I thought about that but I don't think it has a rooster comb in it. What I mean is it didn't click when moving threw the gears. It moved like there was nothing there at all.

there is a spring and roller device that runs against the rooster comb linkage inside. Pull the pan, I think the answers will in front of you, although you admit to knowing nothing on the trans. You may need an experienced eye to help you get it fixed

Refer back to post #2.

LOL I may pull the pan tomorrow and see what I can see. It's not that I don't know about the trans. I just haven't messed with any automatics and don't know anything about any of them. If they work I'm good, if not then I have to pay someone to fix them. Well I am no wanting to learn how to do them myself to save some cash.

it all is around removal of the pan. Linkage may be loose as mentioned in post 2 . Often this linkage will split - crack apart at the bolt - nut. It is a weak design and if a person cranks hard on it, the linkage can fracture or be fractured from a few decades of service. New replacement parts are availible now, a bit pricey , but work well

Tomorrow is supposed to be nice and I have nothing else planned so I may just get out there and mess with it.

Well I finally got the pan off and found the manual valve control wasn't hooked up. I got it hooked back up and everything is working great now.
