A hose that was connected to my radiator came out and started leacking fluids. My car wont change gears. Is this because there arent any fluids? If I replace the hose to the radiator and fill up on the fluids would that help the transmission go in gear or has my transmission locked up on me?

If you lost transmission fluid, you will not have any operation since it is hydraulic. It is more than likely the case that the fitting has came out of the radiator, and the radiator needs replaced. If the vehicle didn't run long after the mostion stopped, there should have been enough residual fluid in the pump to keep it lubricated. After it is able to hold is trans fluid, you should be fine.
