Do you get a blinking O/D Off light on the shifting stalk? Sounds to me like it might be rebuild time. I would bring it to a shop specializing in transmissions (if you don't have AAA, time to sign up, makes towing much cheaper in the long run) and have them take a look at it.
I had a problem a year or so ago where my truck would not shift into drive, reverse and park both worked fine. Shop pulled the pan and shifting plunger, saw nothing wrong, put it back together with new filter and fluid, and it has worked fine since. Hopefully that's all it takes.
