Q: Q: Cannot shift out of park

asked by on

Hello. I can no longer shift out of park. I can release it using the manual release button. Then when in drive... I can only switch between drive and neutral before having to use the release button again to enter into reverse or park. The break lights seem to work. I have noticed a few hours before this suddenly happened... my car would feel as if I had my foot on the break pedal when applying pressure on the gas. It tricked me into thinking I was placing my foot on the brake a few times. It's not too noticeable when it happens. But, when you drive a lot it's easy to pick things up like that on your car.

My car has 77000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
