Best Answer

When the transmission lever is in 'Park' it activates a small rod (known as a "pawl") that slips between the teeth of the transmission gears and locks the transmission at a standstill. It is possible that through age (or mis-use and abuse) the pawl may have been bent or broken (e.g.- someone tried toput the vehicle into 'park' while it was still moving). If you're lucky, perhaps the rods running from the shift lever to the transmission have gotten out of adjustment (or bent) and the lever is unable to activate the pawls action.

Focus fell out of gear and will not engage anymore Fluid is good and clean still hold park so you do not think its the axels?

The transmission is probably shot. Holding in park is just a pin holding it. It has nothing to do with the transmission engaging. If the fluid is full and nothing works, reverse or any forward gears, the pump is bad or something else internal in the transmission.
