Have you checked your fluid level...

1,745

Are you saying that the shift lever will not shift out of part, or do you mean the car wont move in "Drive?"

yes i have checked my fluid, and it smells burnt so im going to flush the whole trans system and replace the filter

the car moves in drive but i have to rev my engine and hold it at about 1 1/2 - 2 RPM for it to catch into gear and then it drives slow at first then it starts to drive normal
