F-150 will not go into park, NEED HELP!

I have heard that in the cold and the winter there is some problems with sifting into park, but its 50 out and i cant sift into park. i came home from work this afternoon, and when i thought i put it in park in went in reverse. but if i press the brake i can take my keys out, but not start it. so i looked by the drivers side of the trany and there is a hose/wire running to a piston and if i move that piston i can put it into park. Whats not making it go into park on its own?

Re: F-150 will not go into park, NEED HELP!

The cable may need adjusting/tightening. This is not uncommon with higher mileage vehicles or ones that are constantly shifted. I'm not sure if the piston you mentioned is operated by transmission fluid (hydraulic pressure) or not, but if you haven't had a transmission service done in a while you'd be wise to do so. Dirty fluid can wreak havoc on components. Valve body (control plate) has holes that as small as a pen tip and can affect pressure if they get dirty or clogged up.
