Manual or automatic? If it is an automatic, check the transmission fluid level.

Fluids are fine. I got it to go in gear a couple of times but not every time. When I do it bogs down and barely moves.

I had this happen and it was a connecting bolt from the shifter to the transmission. It was hard but I reconnected it and put in a makeshift pin to hold it.
