Most likely is a shift silenoid. You can go to autozone and have them read the codes for you. Then you will know for sure.

Testimonial: "Very helpful , thank you very much."
Manual or auto?
It's gotta be the cable/linkage. You just have to inspect them and see if something is worn or snapped. They get old and crusty and need to be replaced eventually. I had to replace my shift cable on my 86 se with the 5-speed getrag.
Hopefully it's not the actual tranny....?

Hi, probably the shift cable or bushings are snapped or popped off. Read this thread:
Check this before assuming the transmission itself has a problem.
