Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
My 1998 Chevy Malibu gets stuck in park whenever the outside temperature dips below 60*F. The button that needs to be pushed in on the console stick in order to put the car in drive won't budge until the car warms up for about 20 minutes or more.A real waste of gasoline! As I stated earlier, this only happens when the temperature drops below 60*F. During the warm summer months it works just fine. My biggest concern is the safety hazard it causes my kids when they use the car to go to work and they have to sit in the car late at night waiting for it to warm up before they can drive home. I'm really hoping this is something I can take care of myself.I have spent w-a-y too much money on repairs to this car already! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
