CAR ONLY DRIVE IN REVERSE, COULD THERE BE A SIMPLER SOLUTION THAN NEW TRANSAXLE

1996 Lincoln Continental • 140,000 miles

It was driving fine no warning at all. I got 100 yards from driveway and it slipped, then engaged, then nothing since. Will go in reverse but all three gears nothing. I love this car and think it has much time left as I drive it highway 85% of time. But the suddenness makes me think it may be something else. Plenty of fluid. Lil help?

Internal failure in the front clutch assembly. It will have to come out and be rebuilt

Or a valve body problem, either way as Roy has suggested the trans will have to be pulled and checked over thourley.
