WHY CAN I ONLY START MY CAR IN NEUTRAL

1995 Mercury Sable • 80,000 miles

I can only start my car in neutral-it will not go into park. What can I adjust to fix this problem

If it won't go into park, you need to check the linkage to the transmission for damage. If the problem is that it will start in neutral but not park, most likely you have a bad neutral safety switch.
