My van was still running when I put it in park, the while it was still on I tried to put it back into drive the gears are shifting but when u press on the gas, it doesnt go anywhere. Can this be anything besides the transmission?

    Any noise when in gear, feel it try to engage at all?

    No, it just sounds like the gears are spinning but wont catch on.

    When you put it in gear and give it gas does the speedodometer move/register? Will park still keep it from rolling? Any fluid leaking underneath? Axle may be popped out of diff.
    Another probem this trans. is noted for is torque converter/turbine shaft splines stripping!
