The trans may be dead and need a rebuild. They can die from one second to the next. It has happened to me.

Hey I'm having that same problem and I know it ain't nothing wrong with the clutch pack it's all new even the torque converter I was doing 60 mph and all of the sudden nothing I lost all gears with out a sound vibration or anything would you or anyone have any clue.
