Broken Shifter on 99 expedition (auto)
For some time now the column shifter on my expedition has been out of whack. i.e. when you put it in park, the shift indicator was somewhere in between park and reverse. The problem is becoming worse. Now it is so bad that I cannot even shift all the way down to 1st gear. The biggest problem with this is the exact opposite of getting into first...I am having trouble getting it to lock into Park. Thus, the vehicle wants to roll. And I DON'T need that happening. And, to top it off, being 11 years old, the e-brake cable is snapped!
Has anyone had a similar problem? How hard is the fix? Is it a DIY job; if not, what should I expect this to run me at a shop?
