Default 1984 245 automatic shift into R or D, slow to engage

Hi I have a 1984 245 automatic. When I shift into R or D it takes 2 or 3 seconds to engage. Any ideas?

Could be fluid level, the shifter needs adjustment, mileage...

It means you are at least a quart, or likely more than two quarts low on fluid. Check for leaks.
