Question about Cars & Trucks
My sons 1998 honda crv has been parked for several months while hes away at school. Now we cant get the car to shift out if park unless we insert the key in the key slot on top of the steering column. if we do that we can shift it to neutral than start the car and put it in drive. while running the car can be shifted from drive to reverse and back to drive with no problem but as soon as you stop the care and shut it off you cannot get it out of park again.

SOURCE: Car stops moving in reverse gear
Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear
Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.
