Default HELP transmission problem i think?

My 1998 toyota camry starts but doesnt move out of park. Its automatic
and the shifter slides VERY easily from reverse to neutral to drive
even without pushing the button on the side of the shifter and nothing
happens, no movement. The tow truck driver who came to get my car
showed me a broken cable- i think he said something about the linkage??
He said the part would cost $180 dollars. I was wondering if this was
the real problem. He didnt seem that confident and I just moved out of
state so I dont have a trusted mechanic and I dont want to get ripped
off? does anyone have any ideas? Feedback is greatly appreciated!

So call around for prices to fix the linkage, But I wonder did you ever
change the trans oil and filter.

Yup broken cable will do it. So order part from one of the online discount
OEM parts place and replace it yourself.
