Im stuck in reverse!

OK so I have a 2003 C230 komp and it has been idleing really bad for about 4 months and it shuts off randomly if I stop or turn ( i realize i should have gotten this fixed forever ago but ya im broke) anyway so I went to my friends house put it in park then drive and it goes backwards now it will only go in reverse no matter what you put it in. Any ideas here? i thought tran fluid but ofcourse I cant do that so I am planning on taking it to a shop tomorrow but i would like to not have to tow it. Im just wondering if anyone knows what all is wrong with it and if this is a common problem thanks i appreciate it!

Knowing little about the 230, I would need to know more. does Park and neutral work? if not I would check the cable or linkage between the shifter and the Transmission, If they do work, I would talk to a transmission shop. (NOT the Dealer) Good Luck!!!!
