It was running just fine I park it for quite some time and then I went to start it up and move it and it would not goand yes she's through everything moves at the tranny like it's supposed to eat just don't go and in neutral it reads over. Like it's in park but for some reason it is not picking up the fluid

"...eat just don't go and in neutral it reads over."

That is gibberish to me, but does "read" hint that you have live-data?

I would disconnect the shift cable/rod and make sure the shift arm on the trans is going firmly into the detented positions; try it like that.

if it sat a long time it could take a bit to fill up converter I have seen it take up to 2 minutes to full fill converter had 1 at my shop do something like this I let it idle in neutral for a few minutes and it worked great customer came back a month later and wouldn't move let run for a bit and went to shifting fine
