Hello All,

I have a 1985 GT V6 (all stock) with an automatic transmission (3spd). 93,000KM.

It is stored in the winter, but over the weekend, i had to move it. when I went to put it back into park, it kind of stuck. I had to wiggle the shifter to get it to go back into Park. it seemed to be fine going out of Park, the problem was going back into Park. I is doing it all the time now over the past few days.

Just wondering what might cause this problem.
thanks

I would look at the shift cable. Probably has a kink or has slipped out of it's retainer clip.

Check your surround. Sometimes, it is shifted a bit. No idea how, but adjusting the surround resolved this. One screw was missing, on mine.

Thanks Gentlemen, at least both of your ideas are in the same neighborhood. I will pick the car apart in a couple of weeks and take a look.

Cheers.
