4R100 won't stay in parků. help!

well my 02 f250 won't always go into park. sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. also with this problem comes the starting situation. the truck wont start every now and then in Park. sometimes it will, sometimes it won't. when it doesn't i shift into neutral and it starts right up.

any suggestions here as to whats going on?

thanks, earl.

Do you have allot of play in the shifter handle? There's two torx bits under the dash that tighten the handle to the shift mechanism. If it gets loose, then it won't shift in the right gears

I actually did that right before you replied. It did seem to fix the problem at the moment. I'll have to see within the next couple days if it's still doing it or not.

Thanks a lot dude!

mine does this.
the Previous owners wife put the truck into gear without pushing the break in one day

so the collars broken inside. hope this isnt your issue.

if you still have issues the collar needs to be replaced.

mine wont start occasionally so i have to push up on the handle then it starts
