I have a 95 Ford Probe V-4 SE. I put it in park and it started to roll back. It isn't engaging the gears properly. What may be the cause?

Do you
have the same problem?

If the parking pawl won't engage and hold the car in place then you have a out of adjustment shift cable or the cable isn't allowing the arm to move it into the fully locked parking pawl position for one reason or another. The only other possibility is something inside the transmission has failed.
