    I don't know what the fuck is up with my car. I park on a slope every day, & I always put my car in 5th gear after I put the parking brake up. Well, usually in the morning when I put it in neutral, the car starts to roll down even though the brake is up. So...today while I'm taking a nap the car fucking rolled out of it's parking spot while it was in gear & while the parking brake was up. This happened about a year ago for the first time. What the fuck? Anyone have an explanation?

    Well the last time it happened it was in reverse. So there. And then someone told me to put it in a higher gear. :rolleyes:

    There's your prob...

    1st or rev depending on which way your car is facing on the slope. And always put it in gear...never trust just your parking brake.

    Well I always park backwards, & I always put it in gear for extra assurance.

    yes, well continue to put it in gear. just not in 5th..

    if the car is on DOWN hill then put it in reverese, if its uphill put it in first.
