Sounds like the transmission is done. Check the trany fluid level first to make sure it is full. You would need to get it towed to a trany shop for diagnosis, but sounds like it will need to be rebuilt.

Sounds like 1st gear is gone. You can have it rebuilt but personally I'd take a different heaped route of replacing it with a used transmission. A 4l60e or 700r4 transmission is very easy to come by.

Thanks guys that was wat I was afraid of.. :(
