What you are describing could be caused by a broken forward apply band, a worn out inner surface of the input clutch piston or other comparable major failures. The fault can be diagnosed and if confirmed the transmission will likely have to be re-built. The range selecter (shift cable) and manual lever (on transmission case) should be checked just to be sure it is not a shift selector issue. Also, you can check the fluid level as low fluid will cause shift/engagement problems. To get the fault pinpointed, the recommended service is a no movement in any gear diagnostic. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this diagnosed and explain your repair options, right at your location.
