Yes,

It could be the MLPS, which is also called the Neutral Safety Switch, and also called the Transmission Range Sensor.

The 94's had a poor design, which were improved on later models.

For under $65, you can change it yourself in about 20-30 minutes.

I had the same problem with the MLPS with my 94 LX 4.6L, got the updated 8-pin MLPS from bulkparts.com for $34 and solved my tranny hunting problem :)
