Hi. I have a 2001 Pontiac Montana. I started it today and went to shift from park to reverse. The gear shifter just moves up and down. It doesn't feel like its hitting any gears. The indicator light does move from P. The gear shifter just moves freely up and down. The van has been shifting hard lately--I would say about 40% of the time. I've noticed when I start it sometimes that its hard to shift out of reverse--mostly when I am parked at an incline.

We have a 2005 f150 king ranch v8 5.4L with center console shifting that will not shift out of park. We moved the truck and put it in park. We changed rear brakes and rotor on the right side. We get in the truck to move it again and the shifter will not move. Tried jacking the back up again and moving the tires a little (thought they may have moved slightly taking the lugs off.)

I have a 2001 Olds Alero. Went through the little surging and fuel gage fluctuation.

I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Delta 88, and it has the following strange problem. when it is shifted out of park, into gear it acts like it is still in park. It can be felt going into reverse,and all forward gears firmly. To get the car to move, it has to be rocked back and forth several times, then it can be put in gear,and it will move as normal.
