    Yes, you should have the transmission fluid and filter replaced.

    sounds like fluid may also be low. remember with this issue you may cause more damage servicing it if its an internal trans issue like clutches are burned. good luck

    Unfortunately because you have not serviced the trans on a regular basis it is too late now. Time to go to a trans shop. Greg is correct. If you do try to service the trans it may not move again.
