The car idles at lights and stop signs and accelerates up to speed fine but every time when I try to maintain 30 or 40 mph, for example, the car cuts out then lunges. Barely felt it Wednesday then a little more yesterday but today is much worse. Like a fuel filter issue or cracked spark plug wire?

Tranny disengaged on freeway. No fluid on stick. Added fluid it now engages & drives for a minute then disengages. check engine has been on for a while. Is the transmission is salvageable?
The other day I got on the freeway and it began reving to really high rpms and not engaging. We checked the transmission fluid and none was registering on dip stick. We have now out 7 and a half quartz into it as the manual says it should have and it appears to be at the proper level. It will go into all gears and drive however only for a short period of time. Then it won't kick into any of the gears at all. It appeared to be leaking fluid after we filled it up but that may be overflow or something. The check engine light goes off and on sometimes but had been on for a couple days prior to the transmission problem. Is there any chance the entire transmission does not need replaced?

It went into drive long enough for me to exit on the next exit and some homeless people kindly pushed it into the closest parking lot.

I was reading some of the info you had online about the check engine light and the transmission. Is there any possibility the transmission needs a new update or is salvage able without spending a lot of money. I just simply don't have it and desperately need my car to get to work each day!
