    I pulled into the drive just now and I tried to put my truck into park, and it read reverse and felt loose. After shifting to drive and back and forth for awhile I got it to go into park. This is the first time this has hsppened.

Check brake light switch. When brake pedal is pushed to take shift lever out of park,switch sends current to a magnetic lock on steering column to release from park.
I have a 97 Z71 that had the same problem. I put on a new brake light switch and it took care of my problem.

Sounds to me that you need your trans fluid changed and filter. When you do change it use a quart of Lucas transmission conditioner to it. Also check and see if you may have a bad univercel, It will also make it vibrate at faster speeds or your drive shaft may need to be rebalanced.

1998 chevy blazer when we replaced brake booster and now it will not shift out of park whenits started


Not sure I am following your question, or maybe questions.
If you can not shift out of park with the key on, the brake switch on the pedal may be faulty or out of adjustment.
If the warning light is on, it could be the fluid level sensor in the master cylinder, or the parking brake switch.
If you have no brakes after you try bleeding the master cylinder, the rod inside the booster may not be connected correctly. If you replaced the master cylinder along with the booster, you would need to bench bleed the master before installing it in the truck.

The transmission is in "D" but the tach is showing as if it's in "2". It's not shifting as it normally would in "D". I put it in "2" and it there's no change. I put it in park then neutral and that all...


Your shift indicator is simply stuck. Until you have the time to fix it, your best solution is to start from park then slowly shift to the next setting which is reverse, then neutral then park. All automatic transmissions shift pretty much the same which means you only have to move 3 notches the opposite way from park to be in drive. You don't need a shift indicator for that. Later you can replace the indicator with a dealer factory replacement.
