sounds like fluid may also be low. remember with this issue you may cause more damage servicing it if its an internal trans issue like clutches are burned. good luck

Unfortunately because you have not serviced the trans on a regular basis it is too late now. Time to go to a trans shop. Greg is correct. If you do try to service the trans it may not move again.

Thank you if only you all a creed sooner I would not have wasted my money. Not to bad I can still drive it but it will not go into 3rd

Yes, you should have the transmission fluid and filter replaced.
