My kid has a small accident in slow-moving stop-and-go traffic. Yaris rear-ended the car in front if it. The plastic front end of the body was destroyed, between the headlights, from front bottom up to hood. The only visual engine damage is that the radiator is bent in a little, but no fin damage. I have to wait a few weeks to get it into a mechanic. It runs fine and I drove it home, not more than 45 mph for 7 miles. No leaks. I haven't driven it since.
The biggest problem seem to be the gears. It won't start in Park. It won't shift into Park while engine is running. It will shift into and out of Park only when engine is shut off. Also, it feels a little too smooth when shifting from Neutral to Drive. It doesn't have the the soft "clunk" when you shift into a gear. All other gears seem fine. E-brake works fine.
Is there anything I can do to inspect the gears problem closer and figure out the problem? Where should I look to investigate the shifting problem? How likely is it do the repair myself?
I'll post updated information if people ask questions.
