Default Transmission Issue

Hi. I have a 99 Ranger 4x4, automatic, 4.0 with 170K miles. I'm having a problem shifting into a forward gear. When I shift into drive the truck will roll slowly forward (like an auto does when its idling in gear) but when I give it some gas the motor justs revs. Same with the lower gears. There's no problem with park or reverse. I checked the shift cable and its connected to the control lever on the transmission. The lever does move when I shift thru the gears. Also the column shifter is feeling a little sloppy and the shift select indicator no longer sits squarely on the letter. It looks like the plastic piece with the letters printed on it has moved.

Thanks very much for any suggestions.

Chris

I forgot to mention that fluid level is okay.
