First thoughts are check your auto transmission fluid level (with engine running with car on level ground) and linkage to gearbox.

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.
