The shift soleniod is the most logical answer or the shifter cable has to be adjsuted.
I do not think the gears are an issiue. Is you fliud clean ? Does the fuild smell burnt or dark in color.
Is there metal shaving in the fluid. ?
If any of the above condition exist then you should take the vehicle in for service .

Things haven't changed much...look on top of the transmission in the engine compartment and look at the shifting linkage. Look for anything that could be interfering with the shifting. One linkage is the cable to the Shift Lever and Rod that goes down into the transmission. Remove the cable adjustment screw.
Move the shift lever rod towards the front of the Van into the Park Indent Position. Place the Driver's Position (Dash) Shift Lever into Park and then reconnect the Cable to the Shift Lever and tighten down the cable adjustment screw to 70 in-lbs.

Testimonial: "Your solution was "right-on-the-money". The cable connection at the transmission was "flapping-in-the-breeze". I just reinstalled & tightened. Thanks!"
Trans is internally worn and only sealing properly when parts are hot. I would change fluid and filter just to be sure pressure loss is not from filter but if it does not improve, start saving up for a rebuild.
