This could be one of two things, either your engine is not getting up to running temperature and is operating in warm up mode which would require you to replace the thermostat. The second possible problem is the throttle position sensor on your accellerator needs ajustment.

The car will drive fine but the rear brake shoes may drag on the drum. This will quickly wear out the rear brake shoes, hurt you fuel mileage, and cause a loss of power. Replace the springs.

Check your shifter cable. Be sure the it is properly conncected at the tranny. Also if parked on a hill and the emergency brake was not set, it may need a little bit of force to pull the level out of park. Remember the shifter will not move unless the brake is applied.

The Parking Brake has a couple of configurations, on some vehicles with rear disc brakes it will press the inside pad of the caliper and squeeze the pad against the brake rotor to engage, some vehicles have a small set of brake shoes inside the rear rotor hub which press against the hub and prevent it from turning when the brake lever is engaged. On vehicles with rear drum brakes, the parking brake causes the rear brake shoe on either side to press against the brake drum and prevent it from turning. Either configuration in on the rear wheels.Usually the rear axle. The parking brakes are also the emergency brakes, and if they were on the front, could render the vehicle unsteerable in an accident avoidance maneuver.Rear brakes. On some older cars they parking brake actually surrounded the drive shaft and when applied lock the drive shaft in place. Today the parking brake applies the rear brakes.

if its a manual transmission in neutral and 4 wheel drive in neutral with brake off. if its an automatic you will have to pull the drive line to rear wheels and place 4 wheel drive in neutral with brake off.
