On car in subject line moving gear selector from park through reverse to drive and back takes a lot of force- more than it should and more than it used to. But, with key on but car not running it's moves easy. Transmission shifts fine and seems fine otherwise, fluid changed not too long ago. I lubricated pivot point under dash. Any ideas? Something in transmission?

I forgot to mention that maybe it wasn't exactly the same, but similar. Those cars are/were difficult to put the car into gear from park, unless you pushed the brake pedal extremely hard.
