2000 Cherokee will not go into park!

Jeep will not go into park. (auto)
the cable that goes into tran, was loose, as it looked
as if head of bolt broke.
I put cable back on, and secured it, but it fails to go into park.
If I jiggle it, once in while It does.
So starting it in neutral, but inspection shop says I must fix the issue to pass.

I don't have $$$ for trans shop, so hoping someone has an idea.

I have a similar problem where the "binding" can be seen by popping off the shifter handle and removing the plastic shifter cover. As you go into park look for where it gets hung up, if this is the problem. if so lube should help. I have an easier time leaning on the shifter to the left while getting into park. Mine is only a problem in cold temps.
