    My car is now shifting, (don't know why) I had left my car running while I ran into my neighbors. When I got in my car to leave it would not come out of park. My neighbor looked at it but could not see anything that would prevent it from coming out of park. anyway I got a ride home about an hour later my nighbor brought my car home said he didn't do anything just went back out to mess with it again and it went into gear. ( Go figure) Thank you for the information we will be taking the car to the shop on monday to get it checked out.,

Is the car running when you do this? A lot of the newer cars and trucks won't allow the shifter (tranny) to be moved unless engine is running.
If car is running and this is happening, check the transmission fluid. Be sure to check this when engine is at operating temperature. If the fluid is full - I suggest contacting a mechanic or the dealership of purchase.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Elantra won't start and moves when it's in park

I'm going to say something happened to the cable between the shifter and the transmission. There is a switch on the transmission that prevents you from starting the engine in anything other than park or neutral. The transmission is probably in reverse or drive which would allow it to roll.
Someone would need to check the lever on the trans where the shift cable is attached.

I have an 03 chevy venture Auto Tranny, last night i parked it it was fine. this morning i start the car, apply the break and when i try to shift out of park it just moves freely down all the gears without...

There is a cable that goes from your shifter to the transmission range sensor that is mounted on the transmission. This cable moves that sensor to select the gear you are in. The gear indicator also uses this sensor to display what gear you are in. Either cable has broken or it has just come off of the range sensor. It is also possible the sensor has broken internally. Follow that cable to the transmission and have someone move the shifter while you look to see if the sensor is being moved. You may even just find you only have to push the cable back on as it could have just come off. If this is the case, you'll need to replace that cable or it'll just do this again later.

Can't get it out of park

This can be from a stiff parking pin in the transmission, or the mechanism which uses the key to lock the selector in the Park position might not be working.

Can you turn the steering wheel? I am not sure whether the steering lock and the selector lock are closely related, but if neither disengages when the key is in the run position, that would seem to be diagnostic.

If the wheel unlocks, and the car is parked on an incline (which puts a stout physical load on the parking mechanism in the transmission), then pulling really firmly on the selector (try not to break it, though) can be helpful. Also, if you can get another vehicle downhill from the Impala, and push it a little to reduce the load on the parking mechanism, that can be helpful.
