First off check all of the obvious things. The most important is the transfer case shifter, make sure your transfer case is not in neutral. Seems obvious but it is easy to overlook. Next check the fluid in your clutch resivior or if it is an automatic check the transmission fluid. After that there are only three things it could be with a manual transmission. The Clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the clutch itself. All of these can be checked by a qualified mechanic. With an automatic transmission it could be a multitude of different problems internal to the transmission. The only other thing I would check on an automatic is the shifter linkage to be sure the tranny is actually going into drive. After checking the shifter linkage I would take it to a qualified mechanic.

You could have a shop check pump pressure - usually the cause is a weak pump or problems with the valve body.
Chances are if you just sit in drive at idle, it will also move on its own in a couple of minutes once the fluid warms up.
I never recommend changing fluid after 100k.

The computer can't sense movement. An engine with worn spark plugs or bad coils can run perfectly fine at idle and begin misfire the second you put it into gear or under loads. Plugs/coils misfire most when under load. Have you checked them?

Transmission wont shift into any gear


if you can shift gears with car off might be the clutch or slave cylinder. If you can start the car in gear,clutch pushed in and doesnt try take off probally not slave cylinder. But if it tries to take off,slave cylinder. Now if it doesnt try to take off,ease clutch out. Does it move or just rev up? If it revs up likely the tranny. But if it moves can you shift thru all gears,if so clutch is shot.
