    OK, well, as told in the previous thread we got the grommit in and bent the trans cable back into shape. It still shifts real hard from P. After I get it out of Park it is easy shifting. I know the trans cable needs replaced but dont have the funds to do it right this second.

    My question is. Is it OK to park the car in N and just apply the Parking Brake?? Will this damage anything?? She can still pull the keys out of the ignition so they will not be left in the car.

    Thanks in advance for the answers. Tea

    I've been in the transmission biz 30 years, it won't hurt anything to leave it in neutral just remember the brakes hold better fwd than in rev if you'r on a hill.

    Thanks alot, if we are on a hill it will be in P. But any flat surface we will just leave it in N then. Thanks alot for the response. Much appreciated.

    TEA Just be careful. And make sure it will not roil away. Or if someone should hit it. And rolls into something or someone.
    A you know what would happen then.

    Pete she does not drive it very much. It will either be parked at home, my aunts, her dads, or once in a blue moon she will go to the store. But we use my vehicle mainly. That is a good point though, thanks.

    It's also a good idea if you're parked by a curb to point the wheels toward the curb so if it does let loose, the curb will stop it.
