I have a 90 chevy pickup w/a 700R4 that is stuck in park. I have had this
happen before and it is not the linkage it is in the tranny its self. I
took it to a shop the first time it happened and they told me it that the
little paw? that selects the gears went past park and was hung. They
charged me $200 to fix it and I was wondering if you seen this before and
what is the fix to the problem w/o me spending another $200? for labor
again?.

Drop the pan(very messy if you don't have a drain plug in the pan) and you
will see a roller on a flat spring...there is something not right if it is
dropping past the detents...pull it towards the ground and try to move the
detent plate and get the roller set back into the first slot. Try adjusting
the shift rod to avoid this in the future.

Thanks Shades,
I got up this mornining and it went into gear, but the parking paw was hung
and clicking, but the clicking went away (broke, don't know?). It won't
even go into park now which is a good thing until I try adjusting the shift
rod as you said.

Automatic transmissions, like most mechanical devices, do not like loose
pieces floating around their innards. Imagine a piece of metal jamming
rotating parts at 70 mph. If your lucky you'll only death by flat spot the
tires. If you mount a video camera, you might make some money from the
video of the tranny grenading like the bottom out of a top fueler that came
unglued. Course if the roads are little slick when it happens it will be a
hell of a ride.
