Jack up the rear tires. Put the car in gear. Do the rear tires spin? If no check to see if the driveshaft is turning. , if no, then you will have internal transmission problem. Also check to see if the shifter to the transmission became disconnected.

    1. Install the shift cable end of the shift cable to the transmission shift lever stud ball.
    2. Install the retainer to the shift cable and transmission bracket.
    3. Feed the shift cable through the floor panel.
    4. Lower the vehicle.
    5. Adjustment Procedure
      1. Ensure that the shift cable is not restricted.
      2. Place the shift lever into the NEUTRAL position.
      3. Position the shift cable to assume a natural routing. The shift cable must be free to move 20.0 mm (0.80 inch) axially during the adjustment under adjustment spring loads.
      4. Pull the cable end completely forward and release it. (When the cable is pulled completely forward and released, the adjustment spring will position the cable to its most rearward position.) Notice: Do not pull the shift lever ball stud forward of the transmission shift lever ball stud during installation. Pulling the shift cable end forward of the transmission shift lever ball stud before installing the shift cable end to the transmission shift lever ball stud will result in a poor adjustment.
      5. Connect the end of the shift cable to the transmission shift lever stud ball.
      6. Press the locking tab IN in order to secure the shift cable to the transmission bracket.
