Though you did not say, I'm going to assume it's a stick shift.
Shifter popping out of gear nearly always indicated an internal transmission problem (likely worn synchros) Either way, trans needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Transfer case is supposed to be filled with good grade auto transmission fluid, though some people opt for gear oil (but it gets really thick in cold weather). You may aslo have a t-case problem if you ran it low, but it is not related to shifter problem!

    Ok... its an automatic, If it's an aw4 (used on L6 engines) There is a drain plug on the pan. If it's a 727 (larger chrysler trans) there may not be a drain plug. Yes... change the trans fluid. Most of these have no way of draining the converter (holds half the trans oil) So, I recommend that you change oil & filter, drive a day or so then do it again.(just the oil) The first time, use the cheapest oil you can find. The second time, I use the best available and add a quart of lucas trans additive with it. I actually use B&M trans oil, usually found in auto trans equipped race cars (full synthetic). It's expensive. If your problem seems to be cured after ching oil, consider going to synthetic on a third change in about a month (use additive again as well) That way the remaining oil will be more stable. Likely you will find a substantial amount of fine metal on the pan magnet. This is normal if unit has not been serviced in a long time. If there is a large amount of reddish non-magnetic debris in pan or on filter, that is clutch material. clutches are paper thin...once material flakes off them, unit must be rebuilt. Changing fluid at that point may help but will not fully cure problem... it may buy you a little time.But unit is not worthy of doing sucessive fluid changes.

1988 Dodge Ram 50 Automatic shifts into park reverse and neutral. But physically won't go into drive gears.

Disconnect shift cable from transmission linkage and try to manually put transmission in drive gear ( make sure wheels chocked/park brake on ). If transmission goes into drive gear, suspect a shift cable or shifter assembly problem. If you can't manually shift into drive gear by hand with cable disconnected, suspect internal transmission/shift linkage issue

2000 chrysler cirrus forward and reverse do not work

It sounds like something broke inside the transmission. It could be the shifter cable, but usually the car will move in forward or reverse, just not according to the shift indicator if the cable is at fault.

How do I shift into four wheel drive?

I've seen some that can be shifted while in park, but generally even when that is possible, it is always better to shift while rolling at a slow speed (under 20mph). When all components are turning, it's easier for them to properly engage without grinding.. If after you are finished using 4x4, the front axle does not disengage, you can usually get it to do so by disengaging the shifter, then backing up for about ten to twenty feet.

1995 jeep grand cherokee transmission park to drive shift noise

Check transmission fluid level, then look at transmission linkage. Some are in a place where they can be bumped around and knocked out of place. Tweek the shifter a little on both sides of the resting position when you shift. If the noise goes away. It is probably linkage related. If you can sample the tranny fluid, check for burnt smell and or metal flakes. Aamco will check it free but dont let them sell you repairs as preventative measures. They will try.
