It sounds like your linkage is out of adjustment....When you place it in park it is not fully disengaged from reverse...This is a common reaccuring problem with GMC/Chevy......Good Luck

1989 gmc 2500 hd keeps locking up when put in park have to rock the vehicle and it will shift out of park

The best way to help in this is set the ebrake everytime you stop before letting your foot off the brake. It sounds like the pawl in the transmission that sets when you put the vehicle in park to keep the internals in the transmission from moving, has excess pressure on it. Possibly due to parking on an incline. Make sure your rear brakes are adjusted up properly so when you set the ebrake it will keep the vehicle from rolling and putting excess pressure on the pawl. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

1999 Gmc Sierra has no power

Sounds like the fuel supply is inadequate. Check for a plugged fuel filter, or possibly the fuel pump is losing pressure. I had a 93 Chevy V6 that acted the same way, and after checking everything else I replaced the fuel pump, which solved the problem.
