my gf has a 1998 ford explorer with around 180,000 miles on it. the tranmission has always shifted roughly, but recently i have lost the ability to shift the car into park when i get home. I was able to go to reverse until today. I have to start the truck in neutral and push it backwards to get out of a parking spot. I am sure that someone here has dealt with this before, but i must be using the wrong search parameters because i havent seen a "fix" for it. I recently bought a haynes manual to try to fix any problems i come across... Thank for your help.

one more thing... is there any way to get my shifter to stop feeling so loose when i am selecting which gear to use.
