No I took it to an tranny shop for a free check and they said it wasent communicating with their computer that might be because of a wire. And I didnt have enough money to have them run a full diagnostics on it

If reverse is working and after taking off with 2, the gears shift correctly after that, you have a bad 1st clutch and this means the transmission requires a rebuild or replacement.
