alright so before I start tearing everything apart, I was looking for opinions on which this is.

My car will not shift out of park in the on position,
But I can get it to neutral in the middle position to get the car to neutral for towing (Dont know what its called sorry) and then start the car and shift to drive.
Shifts dont seem abnormally hard while driving, which made me think its not the transmission. Any ideas?

Do your brake lights work? My old 95 would regularly wear out the brake light switch down on the pedal and I'd get stuck in park. If the brake lights don't go on when you press the pedal, I'd suspect the same thing.

I just looked at the listing/picture on RockAuto for my 03 and it's the same P.O.S. switch assembly - : Electrical-Switch & Relay : Brake Light Switch

Check to make sure the piece the shifter cable attaches to is bolted tightly to the shifter assembly. You can see it on the lower end of the steering column, just above the brake pedal.
