Im a sinlge mom and this is my only vehicle
It is probably the input shaft and either the torque converter, or one of two clutch packs in the transmission.
It will need a re-build.
The best advice I can give you is to go to a TRANSMISON Shop and not a standard repair facility. Automatic transmissions requrie a lot of special tools and knowledge. They are very different from working on any other mechanical part, that is why you see places like AAMCO. By the way, they are overpriced. You can use the search engine on theis site to find a reputable traansmission shop near you.
