perhaps the engine and transmission mounts are cracked? would not hurt to pry at them with a prybar...or put a floorjack under the pan and see if it's separated~...my only suggestion~

There is an issue with the transmission. It will need to be checked by a qualified mechanic.

Did u figure out y? I javr same problem as of 2 hrs ago and I just got this car

the position of the shifter is critical....bad mounts will change the geometry...transmission may be perfectly okay but linkages put it into the wrong parking spot~ should really check the mounts of the transmission and engine...see if everything is skippy in skippyland~
