My transmission pan was leaking due to a bad seal. I decided to change the transmission filter and flush it. After putting it back together I started it the next morning letting the gasket dry and now it is like the gears are not catching. Sounds fine nothing clunking but it wont move in reverse or forward I was able to get it to catch enough to pull back up my drive way, but that is it. Any suggestions? Also I did have a nice amount of metal caught on the magnets in the transmission pan. Obviously I cleaned it off. Please tell me the transmission is not shot

Assuming you are sure the system is full, it was a very bad idea to do this in the first place. A transmission with that many miles is very often relying on sludge to seal many of the pressure seals. Fresh transmission fluid is full of detergent and will flush away the very thing that was holding the transmission together. I have seen many high mileage transmissions drive in for a fluid change and not drive back out.
