the shifter wont move out of park, or the trans wont shift out of park? if its the trans i'd say the trans solenoid pack is toast. i take it you already checked the fluid?

I have since been told that it will move out of park, but it will not go into reverse or drive.

I have been told by a couple others that it might be the shifter linkage
