2001 Mercury Grand Marquis - rolls in park

My car rolls when in park.

That means you have a broken parking pawl or the shift linkage it mis-adjusted. Have a mechanic look it over and see which it might be.

If the pawl is broken, just use the parking brake every single time you leave the car as the transmission would need to be completely dis-assembled to fix it.
