i borrowed a 98 cavalier for a time for the better gas mileage. well last week, i was backing out of a parking spot, i put it into drive, hit the gas, and it was still in reverse. i bumped it into 3rd gear (automatic transmission) still in reverse. I put it into what should be park, cut it off, and now it wont crank because it is still in reverse. Any help?

the cable shift insulator is the little rubber thing on your shifter cable that holds it in place. it is very easy to replace, you don't need a mechanic to do it for you, you can do it yourself.
