Then your gear is giving out. You need to put your emergency brake on to when you put in park. Get your gear checked out. Hope this helps!?

When I put van in park - it rolls backwards. all gears work except park... I have to put parking brakes on to stop rolling.

This is an internal issue with a broken "parking pall". If you can live with it, maintain your adjustment on the parking brake, if not, have a trusted transmission shop look at it. They may be able to do the repair inexpensively. This is not in anyway going to affect the shifting or performance of the transmission.

1991 Chevy Silverado Rolls while in Park

Hi, This looks like the Pawl in the gearbox has been broken/damaged or even left out when the box was overhauled.
It lock the gearbox whilst in park so acting like a brake.
It could have occurred if someone put the vehicle in park whilst still moving.
Hope this helps?
