Go to auto wreckers and replace the console shifter unit (stick, base, and all components) there is a small solenoid on the side of the stick at the base which is malfunctioning thankfully it's made by chevy so there is no dealer cure under several hundred dollars. I went to an auto wrecker got the whole unit for $50 bucks (price will vary depending on area and wrecker) 6 bolts later and a couple clips and i had fixed it, 8 months later still no problems.

First thing, check for vacuum leaks. Wiggle all hoses while engine is running and listen for a hiss. Check all intake bolts for tightness. Dump some soapy water along the edge of the intake where it joins to the head. If it bubbles a lot, your intake gaskets need replacing. Change plugs, wires. Change cap and rotor. Change fuel filter. Do that much and get back to me if no change.

Replace the cylinder lock mechanism. The key will have to be turned on to do that. Disconnect the battery first.
Often there is a tiny hole on the column next to the cylinder. You will need to push a paper clip (or something like that in size) into the hole to release the lock mechanism.
