After starting my vehicle, it often gets stuck in park. The steering wheel turns, and I depress the brake but still can't get it out of park.

    It may be your Brake Light Switch. If it is not working, the PARK lock solenoid will never let go. it could also be the PARK lock solenoid it self, but I would check the switch first.

    I have the same problem that you described. This happened after I had the vehicle towed to have water pump replaced. What was causing the problem you had? Did you get it fixed?

    down on the steering column where the gear lever connects is a gasket move it, on the left at the connection you will see a button push it, thats the only way I do it when mine sticks. To bad I can't send a diagram
