I have a 97 Taurus, this morning i was taking the kids to day care, the car went in reverse fine. Once i got to daycare though the car did not want to go into park or reverse. therefore I left the car in neutral and sht it off. One i got back i could not start it. I made sure it was in neutral cause i moved the car about 10 feet by pushing it. The shifter will move up to P and R but will not actually change the gears. I noticed since we bought it a few months ago it was always hard to get it out of park and to another gear. Once out of park through it would shift fine. Right now if can shift from N to OD, D and 1 and back up to N, but will not shift into R or P. Could it be the actual shifter, cable or linkage. Someone said it could a pin as well. Any help from you experienced owners is much appreicated. Thank you!
