It's completely normal, it just means that the park pawl (a tooth on the end of an arm) isn't engaging right away... Usually means that when you park it the park pawl is sitting on top of a tooth and the car has to roll a little for the pawl to fall into a groove. If you don not quite understand what I am talking about feel free to shoot me an email and I'll try to make you a drawing or find a picture of what is going on inside of your transmission ;) email@example.com (Feb 24, 2009 | post #2)
Nope... Not really, you just have to pop the cover off the center of the dash where the stereo goes, pull a couple of screws, unplug a wire connector and replace the heater controls on the dash. Usually the problem anyway. Labor is cheap, parts is where it can make the difference. Do you have to automatic controls with LCD display or just manual knobs and slides? Parts will cost between $50-$300 depending on where you get them and which one you have. (Feb 24, 2009 | post #2)
That is more than likely the problem... The cable will fray internally causing it to hang up and drag. Which makes it difficult to shift and will eventually keep you from getting the vehicle into park or auto stick. The cable runs anywhere from $50-$70 depending on your dealer and takes a little more than an hour to put in. (Feb 24, 2009 | post #5)
