The park pawl is worn. That is why it ratchets. Replace the pawl and hope it hasn't worn the transmission case.

Drain fluid into a clean plastic bowl, check for brass cuttings or metal shavings in sunlight. If present get complete trans overhaul.

Yes, the pressure lever cable will keep the trans from going into lockup. Nothing will happen if you can't shift to overdrive.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park


Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

-Adjust the shift cable.

-Make sure parking brake is apply, block all wheels.
-Lose the shift cable connector at transmission control arm. Turn the arm to park position and push the shift handle to park, then tight it.

You should be good to go.

Maybe something wrong with neutral switch? Usually it is on or close to transaxle shift lever, follow the shift cable to shift lever, the switch has multiple wire connector.
It may be possible to start vehicle by jumping the load side of starter relay, key on. There are safety issues trying this, the vehicle will crank in any gear. Make sure tranny is out of gear, parking brake is set, block the wheels, whatever it takes to be safe, safety is your responsibility.
If the problem isn't that neutral switch, then I don't know? Any applicable trouble codes?

96 town and country wont turn over and shift indicator does not show park


It sounds as if your shift cable is out of adjustment. If you remove the air filter box and the hose at the throttle body you will be able to access the transmission shift lever, on top of the ******.Loosen the cable adjusting screw that is on the lever. Pull the lever all the way to its detent position which is Park. Release the parking brake and rock the vehicle to assure that it is in Park lock. Reset parking brake. In the cab, place the Shift lever in the Park position, return under the hood and tighten the cable adjusting screw. Your van will only start when the transmission is in Park or Neutral. Hope this helps! Dan Williams

2001 ford expedition stuck in park the gear shift would not come out of park


brake-sahift interlock solenoid not working. check fuse first. when key is on and brake is pressed, it either activates or deactivates the solenoid so you can shift out of park. safety thing.
chrck owner manual for a mechanical overide process. maybe there is one.

Trans light comes on and then it won't shift into low


Sounds like either the range sensor is not properly adjusted or the kick down cable is not adjusted right.If the cable is not adjusted right early failure of the trans will happen.So if you can have them scan the van and see if the range selector which tells what gear its in is right and make sure the drown shift cable is adjusted right because thats what controls your shift pattern and controls and pressure to the trans.I hope that this helps you.Have a great day..

My van in park just keeps rolling and wont stop


Check underneath the vehicle to see if your gear selector is moved by a short cable from the gear shift.
It may adjusting a little or it has come out of it`s retaining clip.
Good Luck
