    the key ive found with the 205 is to not be jentle with it. Say i was going from 4lo to 2hi i would stop(or come close to it) put it in neutral and yank back on the lever not just pull it but jerk it back(all the way) then giv it the little click forward in to 2hi. I loved my 205 /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    I would agree, it shouldn't grind when your in park at all. Somethings wrong.

    if your park pawls are engaged and the truck is motionless then all gears should be stopped
    I am no help in automatic equiped shifting but in a manual it is easier to shift it while moving
