Assumption- you have a manual transmission; (The gear oil part is throwing me).
First guess. Your clutch is absolutely shot. It will not make a 'loose' sound, but when you release the clutch in any gear including reverse, you get no (or almost no) motion. Without more information, this is the most likely possibility.
Solution is to get the car towed in and have the clutch replaced.
Second guess (less likely): There is something broken in the transmission which will require a trip to th e shop.
Third possibility: Something bad has happened to one of your axle shafts to disconnect it from the transmission or wheel. Mybe a brooken drive shaft. very rare.
Hope this helps.

Eric, how are you confirming whether or not the car goes into gear if you shift gears without the engine running? One way would be to put it in 1st and see if you can push the car. If you can't, it is in gear.
Another option is to roll the car slightly forward or backward (engine off) while trying to put the car in gear. Once it is in gear, then the car shouldn't move any further. However, if it goes into gear, DO NOT start the car without taking it back out of gear.
The clutch is much more likely to be the problem than the transmission.
If the clutch fluid ever ran dry, then the clutch hydraulics will need to be bled of air. Otherwise, the problem could be the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder or throwout bearing. Since you didn't report the clutch slipping (e.g. engine revving without accelerating when in gear) it is likely not the clutch disks themselves.
Have you had problems with clutch slipping up to this point? Like engine revving up and no change in speed while driving. Like going into 4th or 5th gear, letting clutch out, giving gas, and feels like no response? Engine just revs up? That's a slipping clutch. If that's your problem, you need a new clutch.
wow, This is a good question,. I am thinking that you may have the throw out bearing handle connected or a bad pressure plate which is inhibiting the relase of the engagement of the engine to the ******.. I hope this helps! Best Regards Ck
This indicates your clutch needs adjustment or the pressure plate is worn out. If the clutch will not disengage with the engine turning the gears inside the trans continue to turn so you can not shift gears. If you are driving you can shift when you rev the engine to match internal gear speed. You can shift with out the clutch up shift and down shift. One thing to look for is the clutch oil reservoir check to see if she has enough oil.
CHECK FLUID LEVEL MAKE SURE ITS CORRECT AND FLUID AND FILTER HAS BEEN CHANGED IF ALL IS GOOD. SOUND LIKE THE FORWARD CLUTCH HAS WORN BURNED CLUTCH PLATES OR ROLLER CLUTCH HAS DAMAGED ROLLERS MISSING SPRINGS.CHECK TRANSMISSION PUMP OIL PRESSURE FOR A STUCK PRESSURE REGULATOR.
You will need to get the clutch hydraulic system repaired before the clutch can be successfully disengaged.
Meanwhile, try rocking the vehicle backward/forward while shifting gearlever out of gear to get it into neutral.
This is a common problem. You have a cracked forward clutch piston. Ford made this part out of aluminum. The replacements are steel. But you have to disassemble the transmission to install it. ( I know you said Rev too, In the AXODE trans, the forward clutch is on in 1st and reverse)
