Sounds like the transmission is done. Have you checked for codes? I'd say a professional opinion is needed.

No codes but I'm leaning on I got bad shift solenoid from cheap auto zone. It's better with the shift pressure manifold from napa I think I'm going to replace shift solenoid from auto zone to napa see if that fixes it


It's unlikely you got a faulty part. Sounds like you need a professional opinion. Continuing to throw parts at it hoping the problem will somehow go away is not likely to be your best solution. Nothing beats a few dollars spent on proper diagnostics.
