Sounds like a possible vaccuum leak to me, take the car to a trusted shoop and have your vaccuum system inspected, hopefully they should be able to diagnose the problem quickly. but before that, warm the car to operating temp, drive around the block and check your tanny fluid level, that could be the cheapest and easiest fix of all.

Your car has an automatic transmission which includes a "neutral safety switch" to prevent the car being started while the shifter is in any position except "neutral" or "park". This switch is activated by the shift lever and prevents voltage to the starter solenoid when the car is in gear (drive or reverse). This is a safety features that prevents the car from lurching ahead or backward while starting.

When we have this problem, we turn the ignition off and shift into neutral, restart the engine and it can then be shifted into drive or reverse.
