You should always use your parking brake. Leave your foot on the brake,then apply the parking brake. If you don't,the only thing holding the car, is the mechanical parking pawl in the transmission,and yes, it could break or fail to hold the weight off the vehicle,and it would roll away,as well as damage the trans.

My 1999 lincoln Continental wont shift out of "PARK"


Is the vehicle parked on an incline? The parking pin may be slightly jammed. If you can VERY CAREFULLY nudge the vehicle up the hill an inch or two, using another vehicle, the shift lever may free itself.
If the vehicle is parked on level ground, suspect the LOCKING SOLENOID for the shift lever.
Less likely, the parking pin may be jammed (inside the transmission), or the shift lever linkage may have become damaged.

Dose the alero have problems after parking on steep downgrade


What kind of problems? Unless the downgrade is practically vertical, I don't see any reason for it to affect the functionality of the vehicle.

Why can't i get my car to go in gear?


Parking on an incline you "must" use the parking brake. You have damaged the "TBLS" Tranny Brake Lock Switch. Try turning your ignition to just before the "on" position and shifting into Neutral. Then start the car while in neutral and then shift to drive or reverse. Then drive it to a Chevy dealer for repair. This is a major repair requiring special tools.

Sounds like you may have damaged the parking claw. Put the parking brake on when you park on an incline, You may need a new parking gear or gear claw.

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.
