Well yes you definitely have a transmission problem! .. Test for *manual low* .. While driving 20 mph .. Pull shift lever into LOW gear .. Does the vehicle slow dow OR does it just freewheel ? .. IF engine braking is present in manual low, vehicle does slow down, it might not be so bad .. IF vehicle just free-wheels, it may not be so good! .. Post test results for more information on low/reverse gear apply circuit.

Thank you. Around how much do you think it would cost to repair. One neighborhood mechanic told me 1500.

Be hard to disagree with a mechanic that can actually drive the vehicle.

Do all forward gears work in drive position? If yes I think you have a trans problem. B3 clutch/brake may not be working.
