That year and model you most likely have a loose input shaft nut or worn out pressure regulator bore in the valve body.I could tell more with a pressure test. So it won't start in park?Does it have spark?

No it want start in none of the gears and yes it does have spark I keep getting different stories from people its either the crank shaft or the transmission or the torch converter but I have a 2 yr old daughter and that's my only car to take her to doctors appt. I just need to find out what it is

The valve body is under the battery under the transmission valve body cover. You could have a bad coolant temp sensor.

Spray a little carb spray in the throttle body and see if it starts?

We have to elimate things we could also do a compression test. Do you have a multi meter to do some testing?
