check your transmission fluid level, follow the linkages to find if one got bent or thrown out of it's socket~ make sure the transmission mounts are still holding true and not changing the geometry by putting a floorjack under it and jacking it up 1/4 inch of so to note any separation and influence on the shift positions...adjust with a turnbucke on these?

I had the same issue on my 99 forester auto at one point, turned out to be a bad shift solenoid.
