you need to isolate the problem.
assuming its an SS and not a caprice.
disconnect the cable at the trans lever to see if its the trans.
take apart the shift console and see if its the shifter or lockout solenoid binding.
if thats ok then its probably the trans cable which is no longer made, altho the F-body cable can be made to work.

these vehicles impala/caprice do have a problem with the shift interlock. you place your foot on the brake pedal and a solenoid moves a locking rod so the shifter can move. these can get dirty and a cleaning and some lube[not WD40] gets it working again.

Where is this solenoid located? I ended up having to remove the shifter cover amd smack the middle rod on order for it to change gears. When i step on brake pedal you can hear a loud clicking noise. Is this possivle a solenoid problem. After the initial shift out pf park i have no problem shifting between gears
