TRUCK WONT MOVE

1989 Dodge Ram • 3.9L V8 4WD Automatic • 140,000 miles

I have a 1989 dodge power ram 4WD 318 3 speed, It was fine when I parked it about a year and a half ago, when I went to move it recently it would go into drive and - try- to move but just couldn't, when it did move I needed the engine R's really high to just creep around slowly, fluid level is good and clear - no burnt smell either, could this be a (simple) fix like a filter or adding varnish remover?

It sounds like it isn't fully engaging in gear. Is the fluid clean? There could be a stuck check ball or valve in the valve body.
