Does parking on a hill cause stress on transmission? Does parking facing uphill or downhill make a difference? Should parking brake be applied before or after vehicle comes to rest in PARK?

Doesn't matter up hill or down hill the stress points are the same on the parking pawl inside the transmission. After you have got the wheels turned in the proper position depending on if your facing up or down hill, with your foot on the brake, set the parking brake then put it in park, and then take your foot off the brake, if you parking brake is set correctly you should not move any at all, if you do the park brake needs replaced or adjusted. You can find more information on You Tube, search how to park your car on a hill.
