      If the fluid level is OK; still slips / does not engage - then no easy fix. Most likely the transmission bands / friction surfaces are worn and need replacement. This means either a transmission overhaul / rebuild or replacement.

      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the transmission rebuild kit from around $68.00 for your vehicle.

      Stoplight switch directs current to the stop lights, cruise control, and shift interlock to turn them on or off
      When not replaced, stop lights will run continually or not function, potentially causing premature bulb failure, safety issues and/or the transmission will not shift out of park.

      Check the brake lights and see if they're on when you applied the brakes. No,

      Check the brake light switch, replace it as necessary

    I had sloppy and hard to shift gear selection from park to L fluid good.
    I checked fluid level its clean and up to level. Then I tested shifting, then the lever went free wheeling with no connection to shift. It's now stuck in park position.

    Rough Shifting when accelerating quickly
    If I accelerate quickly the transmission does not seem to want to shift properly. The engine revs and will eventually shift, but it is hard. I can get it to shift if I release the gas pedal, it will shift, and then I can accelerate ok.
