Check the fluid level, if that's up you probably have a serious transmission problem. It's possible that the filter is plugged, but if it's plugged that usually means that the clutches have disintegrated... so you probably have a serious transmission problem.

Why does my Mercury Mountaineer not shift into park?

This is commonly cause when the transmission is replaced and the shift linkage is not hooked up properly. Find the shift cable on your transmission and disconnect it, then put your shifter into park. The transmission linkage needs to be put in park as well. Now that both the transmission and your shifter are in park, you can adjust the cable accordingly and reconnect it. This should solve your problem.

A problem with several causes. First i would check and make sure that all the linkages were working between the shifter and the transmission. most of the time,there may be a loose bolt or missing pin on the linkage. if all of that is o.k., check fluid levels to make sure it is full. If all that is o.k., you probably need to see about a transmission or transmission repair.

My 1979 Jeep Wrangler is stuck in 3rd gear can you suggest anything to do?

I assume it's a floor shifter. Could be a problem with the shifter or else with the transmission itself. I'd suggest looking at the shifter first, which can be removed from inside the vehicle. The end of the shifter that protrudes into the transmission may have broken off, especially if this happened suddenly. That happened to me on my 81. It also may be very, very worn. If everything looks OK with the shifter, then it's probably the tranny itself, which is a much tougher scenario.
