Used 2004 jeep tranny problem

I am looking at a 2004 grand Cherokee with I-6, auto tranny, and about 122,000 miles. Price is about $3,500. The owner said the tranny park and reverse is out of it. Any idea if there is a pin for this? If the tranny was shot, I would expect all gears to be out. He took the console apart and dropped the pan, but didn't see anything. Any thoughts? I was thinking, if a good price, getting it and swapping tranny or getting it rebuilt.

Park and reverse a different. You can't loose park unless the big parking sprag on the planetary broke. Never seen that before. Maybe has bad cable or something else internal to the trans.

How is "park out"? If the shifter is in Park, does it still roll?

From what I am told while speaking to the owner, he said he has to put the emergency brake on in order to keep it from rolling when in park. Any other thoughts? Will probably kake another look at it tomorrow.

Could see if the shift cable is adjusted properly. if it is, then than the issue is inside the transmission.
