Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 crown vic lx with 52,000 miles on it
& when I go to put the car in drive or reverse
(taking it out of park) it doesn't work. I can't even
put it in neutral to move it.  The stick moves but it
doesn't like click into gear at all. Car starts
perfectly fine. But it wont move. I have no clue
