1986 Ford Bronco gearshifter

Asked by Oct 31, 2018 at 11:00 AM about the 1986 Ford Bronco XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I just recently bought a 1986 Ford Bronco from a guy on Facebook, it's
nothing fancy. After I drove it home it sat for a little bit. I went to go drive it but
the gear shifter won't move out of park, however I can push it back and fourth.
Any suggestions on what to do? It is an automatic btw

If it's stuck in park, you need to access the shift-lock override. If shifter shifts gears, but not showing on selector, you need to fix linkage. If shifter doesn't shift gears, you need to fix shifter.
