Sorry but you need a trans shop. Sounds like the clutchs are smoked. Take a look at the fluid its probably dark.

Automatic transmission not shifting gears


What you say is possible and should be check out as well. Run fault codes and look for faulty TCM and torque converter clutch solenoid and servo. IT would not hurt to have a pressure test done on the transmission as well to see it and mechanical damage was done in the accident as if there was it will be claimable from the accident

Transmission slip


the transmission is failing, it is losing hydraulic pressure either from a failed pump or a defective seal inside the transmission, by now the clutches are fried as well, so a tear down and rebuild is the only thing to do to fix this.

99 jetta no reverse, first or second gear


The shift lever relay is almost certainly out. I just had this happen to me a few weeks ago...be careful driving around in third, you don't want your clutch out too. You can open the hood to manually (by hand) get into reverse by lifting up on the shift lever arm and rotating towards you. I imagine you might be able to find the others, but I had a hard time doing so. At any rate the part should be about 38.00 and $165.00 to have put in at the dealership. I paid like 212.00$...lord knows why this pretty important piece was made of plastic.

Again, watch the clutch.

During driving the transmission switches to neutral (Lexus RX300)


Your tranny need to be repaired at once. The tranny is slipping. Some Lexus owners do have the similar problem including myself.

Hello,
It sounds as if the transmission's clutch plates are excessively worn. You have 2 options;
1. Replace all of the transmission fluid & the filter too. That may fix the problem although not guaranteed to work completely.

2. Do what I ultimately had to do (after trying the 1st thing) and bring it to a Transmission repair shop and have it rebuilt for $1,400 (as good as new). I thought the van was worth it and I could get a lot more miles from it of course you have to determine this for your self and your van's condition.

Good Luck!
