wagoneer LTD. wont shift into gear from park

1986 Jeep wagoneer LTD. V6 Carb. automatic

The jeep engine runs and the shift lever will slide threw the gears nice, when put in reverse the lights come on ext. but will not move. (forward or back)

It sounds like the linkage on the tranny that turns and clicks into gear(s) is slipping maybe??

please help!!! thank u thank u cheers

yeah the fuild is up to level and clean, I took apart the shifting linkage underneath the lever, underneath the jeep next to the trans. and tightened it up but it still seems to slide on the pin on the trans.
But im not sure if it should slide on the pin or not?

Was thinking of welding it soild just to see if it would do anything lol
I also heard that vaccum off the engine could affect the shifting on the auto trans.? anyone know if this is true and maybe a simple way to test it?

The wagoneer LTD is a dusty mint POS ride we were just gonna duke at the river, its hardly worth my time really so if anyone up in the fraser valley (Canada) wants it for a $100 ill go that route too haha
or maybe youll see at pick a part.
