    I am having problems putting my blazer into park. I have tried to adjust the linkage but it still will not go into park. It goes into all the other gears fine?

    I'd undo the linkage entirely, and see if twisting the U-bracket on the tranny will go, or if it's bunged. If the tranny itself is bunged, like the parking pawl is out of whack, no adjustment is gonna help. It means at least dropping the pan, if not disassembling the tranny -- me, I've never been that far inside, and they scare me. :eek1:

    Excuse, I used to be a partsman. Year, model, trans type? Can you get all the gears individually?
