Have the transmission checked for slippage if okay-test the airflow meter and throttle position sensor

Hi I Just checked the trans fluid itself and its empty like bone dry empty I just went down and put some ATF multi purpose in could this be the reason behind it all i've had it over a year and never checked it and it was sitting in a yard for 7 years should I risk driving it and see how it goes or take it in to the mechanics sorry to bother you I would rather not take it in if its something I can do

If its moving with no problem-If you wish to continue driving it-try changing fluid and filter and go from there
