Raise the front of the car and support on jack stands and secure the back end so it does not roll clean the linkage pivot points and lubricate them with multipurpose grease and that should help you with your problem

Toyota camry 2003,when i shift into drive,L1,L2.all works fine .i put it in reverse and the car wont move,what should i look for

Check all linkage and adjustment to insure you are really getting into reverse. Also make sure to check fluid level with trans fully warmed up and engine running and trans in PARK. Low fluid can cause loss or reverse only. If this does not help, trans shop can pill pan and check for bad solenoid or other damage.

1997 Lincoln Towncar. Shifter stuck in park

There is a switch mounted on the arm of the brake pedal (under a plastic cover held on with 3 plastic push-pins). There is an electical connection attached to this switch. In my case one of the wires had broken and was not supplying electricity to the switch. By fixing the broken wire it allowed the shifter to properly move and got the brake lights working again.

Car will not let you take it out of park

under the dash, above the break peddle are two switches, check for adjustment of those switches . one is for the break lights and another one is for the solenoid what is locking your shifter.
