It will start engine sounds strong but when I put it in gear it wont move. I put it up on jack stands and went through all the gears and the wheels move fine on stands and also my ABS inoperable light is on. What is the problem?

If you have it on the ground and put it in gear, then hold the brake and step on the gas, what does it do? Rev up but not move or does it bog down? The description sounds like the clutch needs to be serviced or it's slipping badly. That or there is an internal transmission issue, but I would lean more toward the clutch at this point. Another test, put it in high gear with the engine off, with the clutch released can you move a rear tire?

Okay, that sounds like the clutch is slipping or not releasing fully. The first thing I would do is check that the throw out lever is moving when the pedal is stepped on and released. That is the arm that sticks out of the bellhousing. If it is moving okay then I would move right to clutch replacement as it won't matter much if the issue is the clutch or internal to the transmission as either way the transmission needs to come out. That one isn't all that hard to do but you need to get the car up in the air to get room enough to work under it. This explains the basic process. For yours you need to unbolt the torque brace and go inside the car to deal with the shifter as it is attached to the transmission. For that you remove the trim panel around the console and get to the shifter bolts. Then remove them from underneath.
