I saw your other post about having the original owner install a trans and you didn't know which one it was. If your transmission was low on fluid and if it was an AOD vs a C6 and wasn't connected properly with a throttle cable you basically fried the trans. You have to know what your doing when setting up transmissions as to not to let them overheat. No forward gears and noises means failure. Your best bet at this point is to see a mechanic who can work on your car to diagnose and repair your vehicle properly instead of guessing.

thanks for your input but i didn't have the original owner install a new one he told me he had it rebuilt but it was done wrong because the overdrive didn't work so i thought they either just slapped a c6 in it or screwed up the aod turns out they screwed up the aod i am a mechanic just not one who is very experienced with transsmissons but it is a AOD it was rebuilt wrong thank you and have a nice day
