The transmission on these vehicles have a problem with the Servo piston bore getting worn from metal to metal contact. The transmission would have to be overhauled and a special bushing put in after drilling out the hole bigger. This can only be done with the special tool. If the wear has damaged the transmission case then the transmission would need a replacement. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic check your vehicle to determine the cause of your gear issue.
