You need to tow it for a transmission repair shop and ask for a diagnostic and estimate.
Did you noticed transmission fluid leak before? How's the level? That's pretty much what you can check on it, but don't rev it - actually better if you don't runt it for more than a fluid level check, you might create more problems.

It is probably unlikely but I actually have had my flywheel become disconnected from the torque converter because the bolts became loose. So my engine would run fine but I couldnt go anywhere because my engine wasn't connected to my tranny.
