Transmission won't go into park

I pulled my 2001 F350 4X4 with 7.3l diesel and 4 speed auto transmission into a parking lot. I was pulling a 10,000 lb trailer. It was a slight uphill slope. I stopped, set the parking brake, put the transmission into park, and turned off the engine. When I took my foot off the service brake, the trailer and truck started rolling backward. I had not set the parking brake hard enough. Then something snapped in the transmission or transmission linkage. I looked on the floor of the truck beneath my feet, and saw a torx bolt lying there on the floor. Maybe it fell from the transmission linkage? Now the transmission will not go into park. I can still start the truck by putting the shifter lever into neutral. If I put the shift lever as far as possible toward park, the transmission is in reverse, but I can get the key in and out.

Do you think that something came loose in the linkage, or is the transmission broken?

Re: Transmission won't go into park

Common problem, look up at the column, where the shifter lever connects, wiggle the shifter you will see the other loose bolt. Put a dab of blue loctite on it and bolt it back up, do the same to the other bolt. A flashlight mounted on you forehead is a great plus for this job.

You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
