I don't quite get " it didn't want to come out of park when it was in reverse." Do you mean it didn't want to go into reverse from park, or park from reverse? Or?

In any event I would start by disconnecting the cable at the tranny and see if the cable and shifter work smoothly. If so, readjust the cable/linkage and see if that helps. This is on level ground, right?

Its wierd. Had the pan off to see if the park pin was malfunctioning. No. So i put it back together, filled it up and tested it again. Went P-R-P and it worked fine. Went P-R, fine,-D, fine, -R and no good, wheels lock up. Goes in D fine, just wont back up. Funny thing, it randomly goes into R and works fine. Im confused
