I do not know what you are looking at in the manual, but you probably heard a horrible noise when you put it into park, as the parking pawl tries to hold the car in place. Thist usually does not harm the transaxle. If the engine won't start then something else happened, perhaps the neutral safety switch was damaged or knocked out of adjustment. You might try to move the shifter back and forth and then back into park and then try to restart. If that doesn't work try to put the car in neutral to start. If you must have the car towed somewhere the repair should not be expensive, just have them reset the neutral safety switch.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 pontiac grand am gt that is'nt shifting gears right

My daughter has a 2003 with the same problem. She took it to a highly regarded transmission shop. They told her it is not the transmisison but an engine performance problem. She took it for an oil change to check the filters etc and the fuel filter is bad. I will follow up if that fixes the problem.

SOURCE: 2005 pontiac aztek, won't shift

Modern cars have shift interlock solenoids that prevent you from taking it out of park without pressing the brake. If your brake lights work, then the switch is good and the solenoid needs to be replaced. Look in your owners manual as it will give you instructions for taking it out of park until you get this fixed. It usually involves sticking a screwdriver in from the side to push the release lever out of the way and then you take it out of park.

Toyota sienna clunks when shifting to reverse


sounds like the idle is to high if it lurches, that is why you hear a clunk, you will need to find out why the idle is to high, may be a bad sensor or idle air control valve, there are no adjustment it is all computer controlled so something is wrong , i would think the check engine light would come on by now, go to an auto zone and have the computer scanned for codes.

A loud noise when I turn on the AC and shift it to D or R.


What kind of noise? If it's like a squeal it is a lose belt. If it's more like a clunk it's the transmission shifting and you just happen to notice it more because of the higher RPM the motor is at with the AC on. Try getting the vehicle moving with out the AC on then turning it on after you are moving to see if you get the same sound. If it's a squeal you have a loose belt that needs replacement or tightening.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.
