C4 won't shift into reverse or park suddenly
Hey Guys-- New to the forum but I was told this was the place to go to get some good advice. I've searched around but can't really get an answer based on my particular situation. I have a 73 Mustang Mach 1 with a 3 speed C4 automatic. I have never done any type of work on the transmission at all.
I've had the car for about 6 months and have driven it at least a few times a week since, with no transmission or shifting issues at all. The other day, I was out in the car for a bit, everything was fine, but when I get home and pull into the garage, I can't move the shifter into Park, it just stops and won't go past reverse. I put the car in neutral, apply the e-brake, and let it sit.
Next day I try with with same result. I drive the car a bit and it gets through all the gears fine, but when I come back to the garage this time, it will now not shift into Park or reverse; the shifter now just won't move past Neutral.
Is this just an issue with the shift linkage? Or something more serious? I really haven't been under the car yet, mostly bc Im not exactly sure what to look for?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
