Possible output speed sensor, possible solenoid pack, possible bad transmission. Those trucks were known to have problems with the trannies. If you haven't been servicing it at least every 30K, that is most likely the problem.

99 E250 when motor is running van wont shift out of park when motor is off . when ignition is on and motor not running it will shift just fine

the shift interlock is not releasing. You are doing emergency release procedure with engine off and key in off position.
Likely you don't have brake lights either. When you step on the brake with the key ON, it releases the shift lock solenoid (and turns on the brake lights).
Check to be sure the brake light switch on the pedal arm has the wire going to it and you can hear it click on and off.Check the fuse for the brake lights too.

My girlfriend took off this morning to do somethings and got gas and everything was ok then she came home and then i left and the car started up ok and i took off and got about 2 miles from home and the...

sounds like bad gas

disable the fuel pump and spray carb cleaner into the throttle body

assuming the car starts then you have confirmed the bad gas theory

most bad gas is the result of water so buy 2-4 bottles of "Gas Dry" and see if that helps

otherwise you will have to get the tank drained and refuel with good gas

Car won't start not the battery

Test the neutral safety switch but doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.

Transmision wont go in R 2 4 but 1&3 is fine

Do you have a check engine light? If so,get it checked out. (Free at most major auto parts stores). It sounds like it's in limp home mode. The manufacturers made the electronics so that you could still get it home if any of the electronics failed. Sounds like your shift solenoids have failed you, but it's anyone's guess until you get the thing scanned. No one on here can give you a definate answer until that happens. Find out what codes it's showing and then get back on here with them. I took the time to answer, now please take the time to rate my answer.

5 speed manual trans wont go into 2nd

the syncronizers are out on your trans for third gear and as far as the lifters try running some high octane gas with some oil and gas treatment before going into the motor to eliminate that first.
