    Check the fluid level first but most likely the torque converter or input shaft splines have stripped! Common problem for this transmission. In this case trans. will have to be removed for repair. More testing needed but that is the most likely scenario.

    thanks, that's kinda what I was thinking, how much does this usually cost to fix?

    Hard to say, depends on what is found inside the trans. after teardown.
