Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. This sounds like a combination of two things....A worn key and dirt/grime buildup inside the key cylinders. The first thing to do is get some WD-40 and spray the interior of the keyway. Insert the key and run it in and out several times, then wipe the key off with a paper towel. Repeat this 20 or 30 times. Then see if there is any improvement. If not, I would recommend obtaining the key 'code' from your dealer, and have a locksmith make you a duplicate of your key via the code number. This gives you a perfect key to use.

Yesterday I was driving my truck and pulled into a parking lot.I needed to backup but the truck would not fo into reverse. After a dozen times of shifting from drive to reverse it finally went into reverse and I was able to drive off. I had to make another stop and the same thing happened. I am able to drive forward but cannot go backwards. Also, for a long while when the engine is cold if I try to drive off the transmisson has a hard time getting into gear until the engine(trans Oil) is warmed up. I did accidentally drain the trans fluid a while back and replaced it on my own without a proper measurement. … read more
