Why won't my 18 speed eaton fuller automatic transmission shift?

Is yours an autoshift, or a fully automatic transmission? With the autoshifts, the synchroniser has a bad tendency to go out because of improper clutch manipulation. This shouldn't be an issue with a fully automatic transmission, however, and if that's what yours is, the first two culprits would be faulty circuitry in the transmission computer, or poor coordination between the computer in the transmission and the engine computer (this was a recurring problem for Allision automatics coupled to Detroit Diesel motors). There should be a way of reading off fault codes from the transmission, but that's going to probably require you to go to a mechanic with the necessary computer software to do such.

What is the difference between a 5 speed manual and a 6 speed automatic?

A manual transmission will require a driver operated clutch pedal to shift gears, and thus allow for shifting on demand as opposed to waiting for a computer to determine shift points. An automatic transmission uses computer algorithms to determine shift points based upon engine load, speed, and overall fuel economy. More driveline drag exists with an automatic transmission because of more moving parts, and thus an automatic will typically have slightly lower fuel economy than a manual transmission equipped vehicle.
