Car in park and moving?

So my car has a shifter linkage issue where I must put it in N to go in reverse. I must put it in 2 for Drive. Now just today I put it in Park and it rolls backwards making a clicking noise from below the car. Any solutions?? 1998 GT automatic. It also will not start in park. I have to put it in neutral.

I'm not sure how to adjust it, but I had a 94' f150 that did that. Until i cold afford to fix it, i tied rope to the lever on the tranny and to the hitch. When i needed to put it in park, i would engage the parking brake, and get out and pull the rope...lol pretty ghetto, but worked. Eventually I put a new shifter cable on it and it ran fine.

Same thing happened to my wife's sunfire. The shift cable broke and had to be replaced. It was not hard to do but helps to have someone under the car and in the car to run the cable easier

Can anyone find a diagram? Also I am VERY low on trans fluid. Could that be the reason why PARK isn't functional?

I don't have one and didnt find one, but a Haines or Chilton manual should solve that for you. And low fluid would definitely give you some problems. If its been awhile or you don't know if it ever has been, it would be beneficial to change the fluid and filter. Sometimes that can make all the difference

You'll have to drop the pan to get it. Check out some videos on YouTube on how to. If you're not comfortable with the idea of doing it yourself, take it somewhere and have a trusted mechanic do it.
