Have you checked your transmission fluid yet? If very low, your car will not go into gear. You have to pull the stick to the transmission with the car running on an automatic. Start car, pull stick, wipe clean, put stick back in and pull out....check level. If low, you will need a automatic transmission funnel. The funnel goes into the dipstick hole. You add fluid through the dipstick neck. Post back with results...
