About 6 months ago we notice it was hard to get it out of park. we would have to jerk hard to get it out of park. Now it will not go in park.
My car has an automatic transmission.
It sounds like you may have broke the shift mechanism trying to get it out of park. Since it's now broken it won't engage anymore. I'd suggest have the system checked by a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to confirm my suspicion and suggest a fix. In the mean time you should use the parking brake.
