Right now my 2006 Sebring is stuck in my driveway. I cannot get the gear shift out of Park. The car starts with no problem, I put my foot on the brake to move the shift, but it doesn't move!!!!!

when car is cold slow to go into gear, have to rev engine and then jerks into gear. Made a whinning sound as well, flushed trans and replaced filter and fluid. This seemed to fix the sound but still slow to shift into gear when cold.

found my gear shifting to be a linkage issue covered under a 2000 recall from Chrysler. Problem solved, no charge

Paid for rebuilt transmission and it still "downshifts" from D to 2nd gear, sometimes will not go forward but will drive in reverse. Too many miles I guess.

It won't come out of second gear if it does it quits pulling
Not shifting past 2nd gear.
Perfectly fine until it warms up, you would swear there is no problem, then it starts to smell and refuses to shift out of 2nd
Transmission slips slowly into reverse, and is now stuck in reverse. Shifter won't move.
On a cold start the transmission does not engage. I rev the engine after putting in "drive" and then the engine will jump. After about 5 mins the car will run normal.
