My car turns on but won't go forward or reverse, it goes into every gear it wraps up like if it's normal no grinding noises know anything like that.

Remove the plug and allow it to drain out to the proper level, this can cause the transmission fluid to get air bubbles in the fluid which can cause the transmission not to work. Make sure the engine is running while checking the fluid level.
