My F150 would not go into park so I figured the linkage cable was worn out so I bought another cable. When I went to install the new cable I found a screw loose, so I thighten it and that fixed the problem. But in your case it may have brokin or come completely off, that is the best I can think of.

My 05 durango won't go when put in drive and it also makes a grinding noise when I place it in park

sounds as if the yoke on the transmission or maybe transfer case is damaged so when you put the truck in drive causes the gears to turn but the drive shaft does not rotate which in turn is causing the grinding noise when you try to put the truck back in park

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park

Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

2001 Chevy Malibu- Key will not turn ignition to OFF. It will turn to start the car, but stops on ACC when attempting to turn off forcing me to disconnect the battery so it wont die.

I had the same problem with my 2001 malibu. I found that there is a cable that goes from the key switch to the shifter. and I disconnected the cable at the shifter, and I no longer have the key getting stuck on acc. you may need to push the cable (inner part) towards the switch.
if you pull the cable out just a little you won't be able to get the key to go all the way to the OFF position.
also there is a cylinder as you can see in the pictures, mine has had the wires cut( by the previous owner) you may need to unplug yours. I'm not sure. before you put the console back together try to start the car and put it in gear.

you never describe what type of fuel does your car use... is it a diesel or petrol engine? if its a diesel engine then i have the correct sollution that can help you. the problem will be on the injector pump, on the main switch. change the switch and the problem will be solved. or check whether power reaches there. when it reaches then is the injector switch doesnt work to close the main valve that the car can switch off. all the best

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.

There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

I have 2008 jeep compass while waiting at a light it slowly turns off or when i about to take off it hesitate to turn off

This looks like a gasoline problem. Try doing this, on parking see if it tries to stall, if not put it in drive and if it tries to turn off go back to parking and press the gas down a couple of times. Be careful not to pass the red line revolutions.

I would have your gasoline filter changed, this is very easy and you can do it yourself. Go to the dealer, ask where it is located, buy it and you can change it with a pair of pliers. Another solution and cheaper is to take out the gasoline filter and blow it backwards, it is better if you use a compressor hose. After you see all the dirt coming out, you can put it back and your problem will be solved.
