    Yeah thanks for the response. found out it was my rear engine bracket that had popped out the 3 bolts it had in there. Therefore the whole engine dropped.

You could first of all try looking under your gearbox where the arm attaches from your gearstick... this seems unlikley but if sumthing hit up under you it may have gotten lodged or bent somthing... I dunno... personally i really really doubt it, a more likeley scenario is that somthing has gone wrong inside the gearbox or just around your gear stick.... If it was me and I'm no mechanic so i dunno if theres an easy way to test, but I'd be taking off that control arm from under the gearbox and just tryin to change gear by hand... If this works then you know ur gearbox may be in with a little luck and the solution may be simple ;) well best of luck from this noob ... anyhows if you get really pissed off like me you could always just apply excessive force to your gearstick in the hope of unlodging somthing :P or breaking if farther.. best of luck.... by the way, what happened exactley when it got stuck... were you just driving along and then all of a sudden you heard a kinda smashing / grinding noise :P if so I'd be looking at your gearbox, just check ur throwout bearing is in good nic cuz i seen a car in the wreckers and all that was wrong was the throwout,... $20 later it was back on the road...

I have a 2006 charger hemi, the gear stuck in park. How do I get it ou of park

its might have something to do with your brake lights. if the computer doesnt sense the brake lights come when u hit the pedal it wont release the car from park. to temporarily get your car out of park, remove the coin tray that on the side of the shifter, just give it a good tug, ull see a pink lever the console, just push the pink level while shifting the handle and you'll be good to good. fyi u only need to push that pink lever when shifting from park.

2001 dodge grand caravan sport speedometer not working, gear selector has all lights lit and does not change when changing gears. My husband says that is seems to be in low gear when driving. odometer, gas...

The speedometer is operated by a cable to the transmission. The gear selector is also a manual linkage. Neither are electronic. There may be something stuck underneath inferring with them directly.

Seat stuck

Most of the time its the little worm gear that went bad not the switch (the gear is slipping on the fixed bracket) I pushed back on the seat real hard and hit the switch and Mine went back finally, the track/motor assembly will have to be replaced(250 from Ford) Very Common problem . ----------------------- to remove the seat  First disconnect the connectors under the seat. Remove the 3 bolts (Front Left, Front Right, Rear Right). Remove the nut from the Left Rear. Lift seat up and out.

Load clunk as if something has hit the car underneath. First happened after pulling away just after starting car and forgot to let hand brake off fully. I got the sensation that something had broken off...

This maybe caused by the actual brake callipers sticking onto the brake disks. This may happen in damp or wet conditions. There is a repairable solution where I think the callipers can be greased so that they move more freely and do not get stuck in their chambers.
