Does sound like the trany is gone. If you had a shift problem that could be corrected, it still would not be slipping so bad in all those gears. You could go to a trany shop and get an opinion that they should be happy to give, looking for new business in all. If you have the code numbers, they also should be able to tell you if it need rebuilding, or could be corrected.
