Very common in these cars, the clutch most likely went out on you and it is expensive to get fixed!!!!!!!!! or.....u need tras fluid in the trans if it still wont shift.....u blow the trans sorry....

Answer:I had the same problem with my Taurus and found out that the vss (vehicle speed sensor) was sending a faulty signal to the transmission. autozone has it for $30.00 and it takes about 15 min. to put in.

My 1997 would not shift out of first gear, was 'throttle position sensor'.

check transmission fluid level first. one of the shift sensors needs replacing you need to read codes to find out what is problem
