if it drives fine in auto but not when manually shifting I'd say its most likely a problem with the gear selector switch
these can pack up as they get exposed to cabin dirt and dust
so I'd suggest the next step is to remove the trim around the selector lever and try cleaning out the switch with contact cleaner and check over the wiring to the selector switch for any damage
do you still need help?
