Default Shifting problems on 99' Ranger 3.0

My son's Ranger is shifting weird. You can pull it down into D drive and it won't go. Pull it all the way down into 1 or 2 and it engages immediately. Change it back to D and all is fine. R is ok as well. Dropped the pan and changed the filter and reassembled. No change. Reseached and the solenoid bracket looks ok. Could the EPC solenoid be the most likely culprit?

Trying to keep a few bucks not minutes in my pocket.

Thanks to anyone who can help.
