Your transmission cable is sized, broken, loose or defected. I had this problem 4 days ago with my 92 g2 automatic.
Basically i couldn't put it into Park, and it stays in R (eventho the stick position is in P), so when i thought its in P, it actually start to goes backward!!! And i had to use the key to release the lock and leave it at N and pull the handbrake...
Anyhow, just fixed it yesterday, and damn, the shift is sooo smooth now, is like brane new!! I took it to the dealer to fix it because garages i checked said they don't wanna touch anything related to tranny... dealer charged me about 375$ (tax, labor and part included), that is CANADIAN DOLLARS.
The cable is about a thumb size thick, so i think that alone would probably cost like 150$ maybe 150$ labor...
Check that out first, i highly think is your tranny cable.
