    Bawahahaha!!! I'm glad you said "at a complete stop" cause I was gonna tell you to stop before you put it in park. Bawahaha! You ruined it for me! LOL!

    K...
    does it grind as you're throwing it into park or when the truck starts putting weight on the gear after it's in park? Is your tranny fluid full? What color?

    not as I'm putting it into park, but after it is all the way into park. tranny fluid is a good color (not burnt etc.), and quite honestly I have not checked the fluid level.

    I just got of a trip, and I checked it before, and during the trip. fluid level was good at that time. I'll get back when I get a chance to check the fluid level.

    loosen the adjustment on the shifter linkage that goes to the transmission from the steering column, be sure it's loose so the rod will move, turn the transmission shifter into park at the transmission, be sure it locks fully into park, position shift lever on column where it should be in park, lock ignition, retighten adjusting bolt on linkage, check for any loose or worn parts in linkage which may affect adjustment.

    I will have to adjust this in the moring; I'll be doing some other work on it. I've been under there recently, and I do not think any of the parts are worn so it must be out of adjustment.
