Transmission problem
1989 Jaguar XJS 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 86000 miles

I have an '89 jaguar XJS that originally had a V12 but I had the egine replaced with a Jaguar 6 cylinder about two years ago. It has been running fine though in the last 9 months I haven't been driving it much. Two weeks ago I started it up and moved it about thirty feet to another place in my driveway. When I went to move it back a week later it would start but I couldn't get it out of Park. It won't go into Drive or Reverse. It acts just like it does when the engine hasn't been started up. Any suggestions?

Try jacking up one rear wheel till you hear a click sound. It should now come out of park
