I'm thinking the shift cable gets moisture inside it, it freezes and WD40 melts the ice. I would inspect the cable end that attaches to the shift arm. Maybe the hood cowl seal is allowing water? to drip on the cable? Also I would set the park brake before shifting into park. Sometimes the weight of the car on the little pin that locks the trans will be extra hard to pull out. Push down firmly on the park brake then shift into park. This is assuming the auto release is working.
