problem #2

Jan 102007

Aztek 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
While my 02 aztec is in park and car is started I am unable to take out of park to start driving, I must push button on gear shift a number of times before it will finally go into gear. This happens randomly with no apparent pattern or reason, although when car is driven frequently it appears less. There is a clicking sound coming from top of steering column when I am attempting to put into gear.
