Sometimes, if you are on a hill or against a curb, the weight of the vehicle is being held by the parking gear. When that happens you are pulling a gear that has about 2000 pounds pushing against it. Next time, set the parking brake before you put it in park. See if that helps.

Also, sometimes the neutral safety switch isn't exactly perfect. That's the switch that holds the gearshift until you press on the brake. It could be either problem, or possibly even something else... but those are the two most likely culprits.

I have a 95 and as odd as this seems, I used to keep change in the ashtray, some must fell out and under the gear shifter and jammed it up. Found it in there, emptied the change outta the tray and haven't had that problem again.

Gearshift stuck in park?

It could be mechanical or it could be electrical. Sometimes if you park on a steep incline or park hard up on a curb, the shift will be difficult to come out of park but it should with a little extra pull on the lever. Also, check the fuses. many vehicles today must have the brake pedal applied to release the shift lever from park. If the fuse is blown that protects that circuit, the shift lever will not move.

The reasons that it may be hard to shift into another gear may be due to the transmission failing. However, most likely there are loose parts at the bottom of the steering column.

You didnt mention degree of difficulty so I'm going to with a general answer here. If it's hard to shift from park to reverse and you park at an angle on hill and you don't set the parking brake, then it'll be somewhat hard to get the car out of park. This is because you're taking off the transmission parking prawl with a degree of force when normally the brakes on the car should hold the car in place. Other than this you might have transmission problems. I have this problem on my manual transmission. Going from anything to reverse doesnt work, I have to shift it to reverse, hit the gas a little and let off the clutch a bit, and then pull the gear shifter back out and into reverse again.

Sounds like something is out of alignment in the transmission area. Make sure all the bolts are tight down there.
