My 99' Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo reverses but won't drive,

Customer Question

My 99' Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo reverses but won't drive, it has been taking a moment to engage in drive for for a little bit. I have not had the ability to have it looked at but now after reversing out of my driveway this morning it would not engage any gears going forward. I let it sit for a minute, I tried to hold the brake and rev around 1500-2000rpm's for about 30 seconds and nothing. The fluid is full and it smells good with a solid pink-esh slight red color. Can anyone help out.
