1973 Dodge Charger Repair Question
Dodge Charger Transmission Problem
"The column gear shift acts as if I can not get it in park or neutral".
Does that mean the shift lever doesn't feel right? I don't know what you're describing, but if something is wrong with the linkage, that can be why the transmission isn't going into park. The neutral safety switch is on the transmission so it will be affected by a problem with the linkage.
Things to look for include a collapsed left engine mount, collapsed transmission mount, rust on the frame rail where the linkage pivots between the frame and bracket on the transmission, and a loose bracket on the transmission.
