I still have this problem as well, can anyone estimate how much this will cost to repair?

My lumina need to be rocked back and forth to be driven. THE car shift and change gears perfect. Only when you put in park, and try to go in reverse or drive that you must rock the car until you hear a click and car start moving.

When I stop the car it doesn't want to having trouble down shifting back to first gear

It hasn't been fixed. I just got the car about a month ago from a person who lied and told me nothing was wrong with it.
