When you park on an incline without setting the emergency brake the parking paw in the transmission gets "wound up". This will make it difficult to shift out of park when you're ready to leave. When parking on an incline you should place the transmission in park, set the emergency brake, then remove your foot from the regular brake pedal in that order. When you get ready to leave, press the brake pedal, release the emergency brake, and shift out of park. In that order. Hope that helps!
