I just arrived home and i tried to put the car in park, it wouldnt go to park so wen i tried to put it back in drive something came loose nd it was stuck in first gear. The gear has been "sticky" for abt 2 weeks now but nothing like this.

    From your description, it sounds like the shift control cable is binding or broken. The shift lever inside the transmission may also be damaged.

    Its kinda simple for a quick fix I have the same issue right now. First u must pop the center piece that surrounds the gear shift, as well as the bracket that surrounds it. Then u will c a pink thing towards the front under the gear mount. Put ur finger down there and push back as u have ur foot on the brake n shift out of park.that was the quick answer u can go to YouTube n search stuck in park for a video of how to repair it n u can Google stuck in park for a better detail version of my answer but it works.
