I spilled liquor into the gear shift and ever since i have problems releasing my gear shift from park. I hear a clicking noise coming from the ignition as I try to release my gear shift. Will I need a ignition sensor?

get someone to remove the console and clean out the stickies that are preventing the interlock from working

I had problems like that. Previous owner had spilled coke in console. I took the bottom cover off steering column and removed the shift lock selenoid. It is alot easier than removing the console. Google grandprix forums and search shiftlock. You can find several different solutions there.
