4 years ago had to have Trasmission worked on due to accident. Since that time there has been a very small play with the column gear shifter. Ex: when in D, I can move the red grear indicater accross the D with out it moving out of D gear.

Now 3 days ago the truch decided not to start while in Park. I went to start truck and although all the dash lights came on and doors locked, the engine would not turn over, as if no power to engine. Put it in nuetral and started fine. Now during these last 3 days sometimes it starts in park, about 1 out of 5 attempts. But it always starts in Neutral.
