I find if you park on a grade different cars have a habit of doing that. Get some one to rock the car back and forth and keep working the lever as they do. I had mine stick just a week ago but I got it to release just by forcing the shifter. But don't do it hard enough to break it.

I need to check the fluid level on the standard transmisson of a 2008 saturn astra

No you can check the level at the fill plug (fluid should be just below the fill plug opening) on the side of the tranny, it is automatic transmission that are sealed not manual ones.

My engine light is on on my saturn astra 2008 and when i pass 40 mph it starts flashing, i went to autozone to check it out ,the scanner said random misfire, i bought spark plugs and put them in but i...

random missfires can be caused by several things.yes plugs is usually the first thing people think is the cause,however,bad or dirty injectors,sticking valves,poor fuel pressure,dirty fuel filter and several other things.since you have replaced plugs,i am assuming you gapped the plugs to specs,i would check fuel pressure and if you have not changed the fuel filter for a while i would change it.since its a saturn they are known for the valve system getting dirty and causing the valves to stick in the guides.have the fuel induction system cleaned as this will usually clean the valve system and stop the valves from sticking.have this done at a shop that can perform this type of work as the chemical that you buy at a parts store is not the same.just somethings to check out.

How do i adjst the handbreak

there is a cover on the back of the handbrake (rear seat) that comes off after you pull out the two plastic screws in the rear. i was then able from the back seat to reach a wrench into the opening to tighten the nut attached to the brake cable just below the parking brake. you may need to pull up on the parking brake slightly while you turn the nut to keep the cable tight.

2008 Avenger shifer stuck in park

You need a new shift lever assembly. I see them go bad all the time. Should still be under warranty if it is under 36K.
