are the vaccum lines in good shape

vacuum line?

Not positive on that trans but I don't think it shifts on a vacuum I believe it is electronic shift so it may be a sensor has gone bad call a autoparts store like AutoZone and ask them if they're scanner may be able to read a code for the trans shift code a lot of the major auto parts store will scan your car for free
