i park on a flat surface (in my shop). everyday I pull it, im in first and I just step on the clutch and turn it off. when i leave i step on the clutch and start it, shift from first to reverse and leave. never had to double clutch it. and i wouldnt leave my car in neutral after that incident back in 1982 where my car rolled down the driveway
I had your issue many months ago. Came out every morning to goto work at 0500 and it would not come out of 1st gear. My driveway is on a slight incline. Had to turn the car off...start again...and it would work normally. I would get some serious "Stink" in the car...as in "STINK" sucked in thru the vents...as in nobody wanted to get into my car anymore.
This went on for about 6 months and multiple dealership visits. I went so far as to do videos for the dealer since they couldn't reproduce it (even though it happened to me daily):

Finally in December 2009, I was picking up the car again...again they could not reproduce it. So I grabbed the Service Advisor...drove him to the entrance with a slight incline. Got the gear stuck and the "STINK". Yippee...finally someone in person gets the full STINK and stuck in gear. Long story short...here are the replaced parts that fixed the problem:
5038118-AB Actuator Clutch
53009180-AB Sleeve Pilot 1
4318080-AC Fluid Brake 30
"Tech found failure of the Pilot Bearing due to binding up along with Release Bearing and Pilot Bearing."
I already had Master Clutch Cylinder replaced. So the culprit according to the tech was the Pilot and Release bearing binding up.
Hope this helps...you may be the 3rd person so far (me, grifier, you).
