Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.I apologize for any delay.

Have you checked the shifter cable for any issues?In allot of cases I have seen the shifter cable cause this fault here with it needing adjusted or replaced.If the shifter doesnt feel right when shifting in and out of park usually it is he shifter cable needing replaced or adjusted.

If this was already checked let me know.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.A 5 star rating is appreciated.Thanks Pete
