I shut off car right away replace line, filled with fluid, and it works perfectly in drive but will not move in reverse. It worked great before,It almost acts like you are holding the brake down or its in two gears. The idle is a little high when it goes in drive but it kicks down when you put in reverse. You can feal it go into gear when you put in reverse. Any Ideas

    yoy may have burnt your internal clutch together. when you said in felt like 2 gears at one time this happens when its running with no fluid.
