If you are refering to a manual transmission, have a look at the shifter cable(s). One may be broken or disconnected

My blazer won't shift into any gears, only park. When I try to go into R or D or any gear, it shifter just goes up and down, like it's not catching. What could the problem be?

If the shifter feels loose, then the linkage may have come disconnected at the transmission. If you look under the vehicle, you should be able to see where is hooks up on the left side of the transmission.

I was driving yesterday & it wont go into any gear. It's like its real loose. 5 speed Dodge Neon. Shifter just wiggles around. How can I tighten that or is it something major?

Well check if your gear shifter cable is not broken or off loose. Have somebody wiggles the shifter while you look around the transmission and see whets going in on. Good luck

My toyota solora started by jump start but would not go into gear, what should I do?

If i understand your question correctly, your shifter is stuck in park? Hopefully that is the case, look on the top part of the shifter console, there is a little square cover. You need to pop it open and press down on the button at the same time you take the shifter out of park.

Sounds like a shift linkage issue. Some components thereof may be sticking from lack of lubrication, or worn out.
