2001 ford f250 shifting issues

I have a '01 F250 V10 that does not engage park and low1. I cant shift it up to where park should be to turn and remove the key no problem. However... I have to start it from nuetral and use the E brake to keep it from rolling when stopped. Is there a adjustment on the shifter cable or could this be something more serious? What should I check first? Where to start?

Sounds like a typical "sloppy shifter" caused either by loose/Missing Torx-headed bolts or from a worn-out shifter tube.

Crawl under the steering column and look for two Torx head bolts. They hold the shifter tube to the column. They often get loose and cause these problems.
