You need to have your shift linkage greased for time to time this will ease the release from Park

Can,t move the gear shift from drive to park it only goes from drive to netraul

Sounds like the linkage may be broken and it wont allow you to shift into
park. You might try pressing on the brake before putting it into Park,
sometimes the engine pushes the van forward and it wont go into Park.

Sometimes shifting lever moves hard and you can't get the key out.

You should try make certain that everytime you park the van center the steering wheel. If it is difficult to get the key out or turn turn the wheel just a little. Not sure why but my 1993 has always been this way as well as my daughter's 1990 and the 1989 she used to have. I make sure to center wheel when I park.
