Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like the linkage is a little loose. Check the linkage going to the side of the transmission. Manual shifting especially if you like shifting fast or hard tends to loosen thing in this area. They can usually be adjusted and/or tightened.

SOURCE: GEAR SHIFT COMES OUT OF PARK
Hello, This vehicle should not be able to be shifted from park if the key is not in the ignition. If it can be there is a problem with the shift interlock system in the steering column. Thank You

Soounds like the shop that did the work did not install the shift cable back onto the transmission fullky and it popped off. Look under the truck, drivers side, and you may see a cable dangling. If so that needs to be reconnected to the post on the transmission shift selector on the transmission.it should pop on with a solid push.

If you plugged the original leak (which sounds like the head gasket) and then the radiator was leaking, and you are having water coming out of the exhaust, then you need to replace the head gaskets. It sounds like you had a blown head gasket from the start. Here's what to do.
1. Replace the head gaskets (will need intake manifold gasket as it need to come off for this procedure).
2. Replace thermostat, radiator cap (if radiator is still good)
3. Replace water pump; the water pump may have stopped working (mechanical), which in turn caused the pressure to build an blow the head gasket (the cause of the pump would be a bad thermostat. If the truck was overheating, then the thermostat was bad to begin with, then the pump, then the head gasket, so then the only place left for the water to go is out the exhaust.
Here is a list of replacements:
^ water pump
^ head gaskets
^ valve cover gaskets
^ radiator cap (if radiator is good)
^ radiator : if leak from cap caused any damage to radiator (should still be good)
**Also check the radiator hoses to ensure they do not have any "bubbles". Hot water over time (with anti-freeze) erodes the inside of the hoses, and begins to "dig" holes and grooves in the hose, which evetually cause leaks. Consider replacing these as well for safe measure.
Please, let me know if you need further assistance.
