I have an issue with the transmission.... and its my own fault so I am blaming myself...
I dont get angry that often so when I do its prolly something that really pissed me
off.... so the story goes ....
I finished flying for the evening and was driving home.. while talking to the wife on the
phone.. ( hands free ) mind you... lol we talked about me stopping and getting some food for
us both... so I did with my 14 ft trailer in tow.... I pull into the Rallys parking lot were I was over out of
the way... or so I thought... as I left the van running and lights on since it was dark out I walked up to
the window to place my order as I was finishing my order the manager looks over at the van and says
I think that car just blocked you in... I looked back thinking how the hell... and sure enough I noticed a
blue ford escape parked 2 wheels off into the grass in a parking spot in front of my van which blocked me
in from just pulling off when I received my order... I started to walk toward that vehicle and this short
(redneck ) little blond starts walking toward the window to place her order I looked at her I said I think you need to
move your car out of my way.. she tells me ( when I get my order I will move ) .... I thought you little incondiderate
@#$#$.... I told her well then I will take care of you.....I jumped in the van and it took 3 times backing and turning
but I went ahead and pulled all the way up into the grass ....blocking her vehicle in then .. ( which in high site )
if I had parked that way in the first place there would not have been an issue ... but I really didnt want to pull into the muddy
grass... I thought I was being considerate by getting out of the way for people... so to get to my problem...
when I did park it was on a slite hill and it did not go into park.. I didnt feel anyting break...or hear anyting either...
So now the van wont stay in park.. I believe that the Parking Paw Broke in the transmission... but here is some
really weird issues... 1 the gear shift indicator does not ever read Park now... 2... The shifter does go into the Park detent
but it does not stop rolling.. 3 while its in park the reverse lights stay on all the time. 4 I have to use the parking brake to
keep the Van from rolling away....
has any one done this to their van ?

Linkage needs adjusted. The adjuster is right there on the shifter cable along the left frame rail.

I am enjoying following all the posts on your vans. I also enjoy all the pictures. My van (Cookie Monster) is in a perpetual state of done, but I am always open to ideas on how to improve on it. Keep posting into 2019!!

Hey everyone... I have been deep into my hobby over the winter months.. more so than I ever have been...
I took a trip up to New Jersey from Kentucky.... on the way home I noticed the oil pressure had dropped
considerably... from 44 psi at cruise to 23 psi at cruise... the motor never made any noise to indicate it
was starving for oil..... I had already in the past changed out the sending unit.... so I guessed I had an
oil pump failing... so for the last 2 days I have been tearing the front of the motor down...
I will go into details on that later.... but I am sure thankful it did not completely fail and I get
stranded.. lol.
