Parking pawl
#1
Does anyone know if a parking pawl can be replaced with the transmission in the car? My car will not go into park. I got into an accident and now it rolls with it in park. The shop where my car is says they have the linkage adjusted correct, so not sure why they can’t get it to go into park. 
After the accident I know that the I put the car in neutral to pull up on the flatbed. I think maybe the actuating rod may have broken or somehow came off the shift lever. The car was never in park, so I really don’t think the pawl could have broke. Anyone have this happen before?

What trans is it?

Because the parking pawl is at the rear of the transmission at the tailhousing it may be possible to get to it. However, the parking pawl rod may be what the problem is. The parking pawl rod pushes the parking pawl into the notches on the parking gear and engages. The parking pawl rod is the culprit more often than the actual pawl.

This should help

Do they know about the lock out rod on the column, that needs to be properly adjusted too.
That might be holding back the main rod

Well Don, I think they do. Paul told me that they have everything all adjusted correct, but?
I do remember that I had to kinda move the shifter back and forth a few times before I could get it move freely. It felt like it was jammed up a bit and then it popped loose. But this was before they even came and picked up my car. And then the entire drivetrain was removed.
I just want it back here and I’ll have to deal with it.

John, I think you should call the insurance co or the adjuster
The engine was hit by the pole

You paid for a engine rebuild ... I think they should have paid for a good chunk of that 
You paid extra to aline the fender and the door - something about repro parts ...  Chin

You certainly shouldn't be footing the bill again on the trans

I'm starting to wonder about this shop ... you really need to talk to the ins adjuster...

I am waiting to hear back from the insurance company. An adjuster was there last week to check out the transmission issue. Was supposed to hear back by today, but nothing as of yet.

Ya I had the engine rebuilt but why would insurance pay for any of it? They only paid for the stuff on the front of the engine that was damaged.

I didn’t pay anything extra for the extra work on the repo parts. The shop worked it out with the insurance company.

I agree that the insurance should take care of the transmission issue. That’s what I am trying to get done. But I do want to get it back home and deal with it here instead of 2 hours away.

Thanks Don, hopefully this is almost over. Just getting frustrated with some of this.
