Check your bushing on the shift linkage. These tend to break, very common. Dorman offers a repair bushing.

2003 Chevrolet Cavalier automatic won't shift to park and reverse its stuck on neutral and drive

I think it is linked to the Starter Interlock system and probably a switch on the Brake pedal lever under the dash.

There is suppose to be a safety system(check brake lights) which prevents starting the car without a foot on the Brake or without the car in Park.

Some makers may allow starting in Neutral like the old days; but the intention of the system was to prevent runaway cars from moving when the Gearshift lied about being in Park.

I know that the system had to be adjusted "referred to as timed" so that the shift linkage, Brake pedal switch and sometimes Ignition switch had to be in the right place for everything to work.

Reading your problem it is evident that part of the system was crippled for some time, and finally fell apart on you.

Possibly your shifter indicates D when it is in another gear and that the linkage is binding and preventing the correct selection of gears.

You could securely jack a rear wheel off the ground and disconnect the trans linkage. Have an assistant operate the gearshift and see if it makes sense and if it is binding. If the shifter seems okay, your only choice is to try to operate the shift lever sticking out of the trans. Engine OFF. To see if valve body in trans is rough.

Alternative is to tow it to a Repair shop for diagnosis. Notice I did not say Trans shop. You don't know if you need a Trans shop yet. So taking it somewhere where they do not install Transmissions will go further in getting only what is necessary fixed.

Please rate my info, I hope it helps.

My chevy trailblazer wont shift from park to drive.

chances are the shift cable is broke at the transmission, I drilled the rod out of the shift lever and ran a shoulder bolt through the shift lever and cable end and finished up with a lock nut.

Will not shift out of park

can you move the shifter and it wont go into gear or will the shifter not move at all?? if shifter wont move, there is an electrical solinoid that will not allow the shifter to release when the car is off, that could be faulty, i think it also has a safety mechanism that wont allow it to shift if your foot is not on the brake? if the shifter moves through prn321 but the trans wont come out of park, you have broken the shifter cableand or damaged the shifter mechanism in the trans. hope i have been of some assistance
