and transmission is not

Low transmission fluid causing the transmission to overheat. If you keep driving the vehicle with low fluid, you'll burn up the clutch plates. As in no driving. Look for obvious leaks around the transmission, near the radiator and if your vehicle has a secondary trans oil cooler.. check that too.
