I'm having a similar problem with my car. There is a linkage from the shifter stick in the car to the transmission. Here in this area we have had severe fluctations in weather from nice and warm (65 deg F) to about freezing bloody cold (-10 deg F) and my linkage has shrunk and expanded. With my car, a 1989 Plymouth Horizon with a 3 speed automatic transmission I need to put the car into park, then under the hood, trace the wire to the linkage. Then I loosen the lock and pull the linkage forward towards the front of the car. Tighten down the lock and its done. Check your service manual or Haynes manual for how to do it specifically for your car. --Bobwars
