Did the shift lever itself break or did the cable break? If it is the cable you could possibly do it yourself using a manual such as Haynes Manuals or a Chilton Book.

I agree. If the shifter broke, get another unit from the junkyard and swap it into yours.

thanks for your suggestions

i fixed my shifter. The cable had popped out of the plastic groomet. the cable is bent and it will not go into park very well. I tried staightening it but i dont woant to break it. Is it ok to keep driving it and just use neutral when parking?

No. Park is for parking the vehicle, not neutral.

A new cable is cheap from Chrysler. Get a new cable and replace it.
