The throttle cable or linkage might be sticking. Take the vehicle to a repair shop that you trust, they can probably find the problem.

seems like your gear linkage is either broken or come off, if the linkage is ok then u are looking at a replacement gearbox

SOURCE: motor

It's one of two things, either the idle air control valve is going bad, or you have air in the cooling system. Check and see if have any kind of coolant leak, if not it's the idle air valve. I run into the air in the coolant system more than anything on those cars and it doesn't take much air in the system to cause the problem you are describing. Good luck hope this helps.

SOURCE: car will not shift out of park and yes the brake is being pressed

Shifter assemblies are a common problem with these vehicles (floor shift models). An audible click should be heard in the shifter area when the brake pedal is depressed (if not, you may have an electrical issue in the btsi curcuit, see a qualified repair facility). Hope this helps you, good luck

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.

On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

I put the car in park on a little incline and it would'nt go into reverse it was stuck and i had a hard time with gear shaft, i held the brake and tried to pull it back to reverse and it wouldn't go, my...

The parking mechanism in the transmission has a shaft which slides into a V shaped groove. This is designed to make it easier to put the car in park. The bad part is that it allows for a little movement. The best way to prevent this from happening again is to engage the parking brake when you put it in park, especially on an incline. This will prevent the rollback you experienced from happening again. Hope this helps.

Car will not chnage from park position when put in reverse,drive

I think there is a cable for this that goes to the transmission. Problems with them are broken cable, or loose cable clamp especially on the transmission end. It is also possible that the end attached to the transmission detent got unattached, or the end to the shifter did. Rick
