While driving a steady speed of about 50 mph the transmission acted as if it was shifted into neutral. I had to drive 1/4 mile in reverse to get home. The next day I started the car to let it warm up, checked the trans fluid level and it was perfect. I put the gear selector into drive and you can feel it engage, however when I took my foot off the brake the car did not move. I pushed the gas and still the car did not move. Shifted in reverse and the car moved, shifted into low ( first gear) and no movement. Same in all forward gears
