I don't know what broke. That's why I said when shifting because I think the linkage inside the gear shift.

Would need to be seen in person , to visually inspect and verify what happened , sorry I'm not up to par on GM , it might be something common on those vehicles and maybe someone else here will see this post and reply with something better (one can hope) good luck.

Thank you for your reply. I took it to a shop and they told me the steering column broke and it would cost $500 dollars to repair. For quite sometime the car would would be very hard to put in gear, from park to drive. So I was forcing it and it ended up breaking. The mechanic from AAA came and put in gear from under the vehicle just so I could drive it to the shop. I did not think it was the column because when the car was off, it was stuck in park but when I started the car, the gear shift was loose and would not shift out of park. Thank you!
