I was looking under the hood, and noticed that i could hear air rushing around. I found that a vacum hose had decayed and cracked. After i replaced that, everything has been fine

This is probably happening because, underneath your shift console, there is a lever that keeps you from shifting from park without the keys in. The best way I found to fix this was, there are 6 screws, that keep you from getting to it, they are pretty visible, two right in front of the passenger and driver seat, 2 closer to where your feet would be if you were sitting in those seats, and two at the back of the e-brake console. Take this entire plastic off and you'll find that when you sit in your passenger seat, you can see a piece that is most likely dirty from spilled drinks and such, and if you push it, it may not budge, this is a solenoid, this is that piece that is keeping you from shifting from park, I recommend keeping and cleaning the solenoid if your solenoid is not completely corroded, in my case, I had to just destroy the entire thing.
The reason that solenoid piece is why you can't shift from park is because you have that solenoid piece, underneath your shifter, and when you push the button, it's hitting the solenoid. The reason for this is, the fact that your shifter uses a small cylindrical piece to guide and stay in gears, and that small cylindrical piece is probably hitting your solenoid.

My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

Wasn't there a recall for the sensor/part that keeps the gear shift from moving when your foot is not on the brake? Did you ever take your car back to have this replaced?

car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be
transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.
