Transmission shift problem. The transmission will not go into park by that I mean it will not engage into park. The lever has no real issues that I can tell. It makes a slight grinding sound in park as well as neutral and when put in reverse it makes a significant grinding sound. It has its forward gears, but they do not seem to act right and I am not sure how to describe it just feel sluggish I would say

Need to check the shift linkage. It sounds like it is either out of adjustment or the bushing on the transmission end of the cable has failed. Both would put the transmssion "between" gears.
