If it is a manual transaxle try to adjust the shifter linkage and if it is an automatic tru to adjust the shift cable and throttle cable.

There is a part call the governor , it is on top of your transmission ,and looks like a distributor,,this has a plastic gear at the end of the shaft that wear out and doesn't let the transmission to shift ,i believe it has a ten mm bolt that holds it in place.

Thats my 2c worth. Who knows? you might even have a valve body problem
