SOURCE: 97 Saturn SL2 won't turn over
Check the neutral-saftey switch. If it is a clutch, the starter will generally engage and the car will generally lurch forward. Most newer cars are equiped with a switch that detects when the car is in-gear & wont permit it to turn over. Could be the clutch but go for the cheap fix first.

Your valve body and possibly input shaft nut need to be replaced. The valve body's booster valve is worn down and won't create pressure. Before it went completely out it slammed on the input shaft nut and loosened it.
You need to replace the valve body and retorque the input shaft nut. The transmission is not junk. The above needs to be replaced and change the filter and fluid and do it every 20K miles.

You have a failing valve body. You need to replace it with one that has the Sonnax upgrades in it. The quicker you replace it the better before you begin to loosen the input shaft nut and have to do that repair as well.
Also you must change the transmission fluid every 20,000 miles (30,000 suggested by Saturn) to ensure that no gunk or build up is in the valve body, which is the original cause of your slipping and failing valve body.
The valve body can be replaced with the transmission in the car. It is a 45 minute to an hour job and can be done for $200 with simple hand tools.

The problem is the bushing that attaches the cable to the shifter has failed. This is a plastic bushing and can be reattached if the tabs are not broken. You need to remove the console to access the cable end, the bushing goes through the plastic cable end and snaps on the ball attached to the shifter. There is a stainless replacement part available on line for $29.00 check satarnshifterbushing.blogspot.com
