There are two components generally at play here that give those symptoms:

1. The brake/shift lever interlink: Make sure you are pressing on the brake pedal for a couple of seconds before grabbing the shift lever and wrenching on it. You have to give the security interlink time to disengage or you will fracture the shift handle assembly. It is a cast part and, based on anecdotal evidence, somewhat brittle.

2. The shift cable connector assembly: This is the cable's connection point at the transmission. It is on the driver's side of the transmission housing. Just follow the cable back. The connector can get fouled with road grime and debris and not allow the connector to rotate properly. I suggest giving it a good blast with brake cleaner and regrease the assembly with a good silicon grease.

Hope this alleviates your symptoms.
