A possible inexpensive and easy solution to check first would be the Brake Switch, located on the floorboard right behind the Brake pedal. The Pedal may have become misaligned with the switch or the switch may have broken somehow and isn't lined up thus Not activating the release of you being able to shift out of Park. Or the switch is just broken.

I can take the shift the out of gear without using my brakes what powers this

You didn't say what make/model, but if it's an automatic, that's how some are made - you should be holding the brake while shfting in/out of Park.

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...

A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

My 2004 DHS is shfting hard in first two gears only when engine has already been running for a while. it jerks and was given the p0741 code at shop. mechanic replaced separated engine mount but my service...

Hello: The code you have P0741 means the torque converter is stuck off. Either the solenoid is bad or the torque converter is bad. Troubleshooting with a GM scanner will help to diagnose this problem. Recommend letting a Transmission shop repair this.

I can't put the gear in when I press the brake

You can try having someone rock the car back and forth while you are trying to shift. Sometimes, when a car is parked on an incline, which I can only assume by your problem, the parking pin gets pinched in. Pushing the car forward and backward while you shift will give you what you need to get it out of park.

If this is not the problem, please feel free to respond back and together we will get you rollen.

Good Luck!
