Sounds to me like your clutch plates in your tran are on their way out. I had at 166,000 a hard time getting into 2nd gear from 1st. I changed it out of concern over getting stuck somewhere. You may also have a vaccuum leak which is in turn causing issues with the shifting. Vaccuum leaks are typically cheap to fix.
