Sounds like the gear shift linkage. Not too hard to fix but I would take to a professional

Dorothy, 2006 Jeep Wrangler question: The gear shifter should have resistance when shifting into the gears. If it moves freely, the linkage may have become disconnected or it is broken. A transmission shop should be able to diagnose that concern for you. Not all transmission work is major.
