#6 of 12 2008 Impala automatic transmission locked up
Mar 29, 2009 (2:57 pm)
My shift lever locked up in Park and won't release. Shift lever release button will not depress. It sounds like it may be torque locke, but this thing is stuck solid, won't budge. Tried everything recommended in the owner's manual, pushed it, etc. I'm stuck and there's no-one at Chevy to help me. Car has 25k miles and is otherwise fine. I have no clue...any suggestions? Thanks.
#7 of 12 Steering Assembly - 2008 Impala SS
Apr 11, 2009 (7:23 pm)
I heard knocking noise when applying brakes and when pulling into parking spots and such. I took it to the dealer and they said the steering assembly had to be replaced. Well less than 8 months later, the sound is back. Is this an on going issue with the 2008 Impala SS?

#10 of 12 2006 Chevrolet Impala gearshift locked in park

Chevrolet dealer said the whole gearshift would have to be replaced and would cost $500.00 plus. There was no other alternative. It was not a fuse or any kind of switch. Could they be wrong?

There is a solinoid that allows you to shift out of part when the gas pedel is pressed. Usually you just have to replace that part to fix the problem of a shifter being stuck in park.
