    Do you hear an annoying high pitched metallic whine ? If so , the pump failed , probably time for a trans. The fluid level is correct , right? (checked after warmed up on LEVEL ground -engine OFF)

    No there is no whining noise. Yes the levels are correct. But if it was my transmission I wouldn't be able to drive the car or even put it gear right?

    IF it acts normal for the first few minutes (until it warms up)and then it will not move , but the engine is running , it sure sounds like a trans problem. Are you checking the fluid level with the engine OFF? Does the 'D' light flash at any time , or is the check engine light on?
