Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I am here Sundays through Thursdays from around 5 am to 2 pm Mountain time.If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Does the shifter feel loose like it is not grabbing the transmission linkage to shift in and out of park?

Have you noticed any transmission fluid leaks on the ground at all with this issue here?

Let me know,thanks Pete.
