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

Were exactly at will that valve body be located at

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

Could it jump time? And were do you think I should start first to find out why it want crank

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

Could that be one of the problems?

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