When vehicle can be driven - highly recommend transmission servicing - drain - replace filter and refill .. Do not have transmission flushed!

Cold temperatures makes transmission fluid much more viscous - especially old fluid .. This in turn makes it harder for the transmission pump to circulate the fluid - which WILL result in no engagement when shifted into gear.

I’m near Roanoke VA. - it was actually closer to 0°F here last night - not considering wind chill factor.
