Question about 2000 Honda Civic
First of all I would not drive it unless testing to see if its fixed it could cause more damage.
Block the wheels so the car can't move, start the car & put it in neutral then check the transmission fluid while the car is in neutral other wise you will get a false reading.
If the transmission fluid is low that can cause the shifting issue, make sure you fill it with the correct fluid.
If that does not the problem or does not help get the engine light scanned so you can get the code. That might tell you what is going on.
Worst case tow it to a transmission shop .. It could be something stupid and cheap the fix but you never know with transmissions.

following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any
electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.
engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only
for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the
transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in
most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory
of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as
the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done
is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system
for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for
engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained
technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then
based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the
correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer
replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other
basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with
the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine.
The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear
engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related
