gear. However it does reverse and everything else... I'm

Check your transmission's fluid level. If it doesn't show at all on the dipstick, that might be the problem. Fill it up and see what happens. If it shows at all on the dipstick, even if its low, that's not the problem. Don't waste your money on transmission fluid. Take it to a shop and have it diagnosed. It could be something electronic that can be easily fixed, but more likely the transmission is finished. Prepare for the worst and start looking around for a different car.
