check trans fluid

What belt was replaced? Check the transmission oil level. If it is good, next check and make sure the linkage is connected or correct. If you don't know how to do it, and you have a friend that understands transmissions, ask him/her to check the linkage. If not have it taken to a reputable garage. Did this just happen after you had the "belt" replaced? Go back to who did the work and ask them what was done and why it affected the transmission. They may of disconnected something and forgot to re-attach it.

The transmission needs to be diagnosed. It could be a torque converter, or an electronic problem. If your trans fluid was that low to render the car immovable, you'd probably smell it.

Byron, it's been 10 months now. What did you find out was the issue? It'll help us in trying to help others that may experience the same like issue. We understand your car is 14 years old, but we don't know the mileage or how it has been driven. Some are driven to and from church meetings and to the grocery store, others are driven like they stole it. Hopefully it was just low on fluid and that fixed it for now.
