While on the freeway the transmission stopped propelling the car.
Transmission will not inguage in any gear.
Fluid was at proper level but dirty, now filter and fluid new.
Powertrain fuse is good.
Nutral switch and gear selector operating properly.
All cables connected and move freely.
My next guess is speed sensor or,
if there is a pump, the pump or,
Torque Converter Clutch.

Re: Car wont move
Maybe you broke the main chain in the transmission // i've seen that happen on a 87 bonneville when starting off a green light with a full load of groceries in the trunk. they break just like anything else bad news is replacement is almost as cheap as fixing it / you need a replacement transmission :)

Check your transmission fluid level first before doing anything else, and also note the color of the fluid. If it's dark then it needs to be changed. If it's low, you should do a transmission fluid change and fill it with 2.6 quarts of Hobda ATF fluid
check your transmission fluid level. It is better not to force it just load it to a recovery service track and take it to a qualified garage where they will check the pressure and serviceability of your automatic gear box. Looks like you have a problem with the gear box, is slipping on acceleration.
I had a similar problem in my Mazda truck before. There is a pressure switch on the side of my truck's automatic gear box. The switch is connected to the engine vacuum system. When the switch leaks, the vacuum sucked the transmission oil through the vacuum line to the engine over time. Have you checked your transmission oil level? If the oil level is low, that's probably the reason. I was still able to drive back home by adding sufficient amount of transmission oil.
Have you checked your transmission fluid level? Make sure car is level, engine running with engine and transmission at operating temperature. The dipstick is located under hood, on driver side behind engine. Typically has a yellow handle.
CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL NEED TO DO TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE AND FILTER CHANGE,ADJUST BANDS EVERY 15000 MILES INTERVALS. CODE SCAN FOR FAULTY TRANSMISSION FLUID PRESSURE SWITCH OR FAULT IN TRANSMISSION SHIFT SOLENOID.
check transmission fluid level could be low.if transmission fluid level okay and fluid and filter been changed every 21000 miles.code scan for transmission fault codes like faulty transmission range sensor.faulty transmission fluid pressure solenoid, look for faulty torque converter code or faulty tcm. if you see no fault codes.either transmission manual shift linkage loose or broken or you have internal transmission damaged.
Unfortunately, yes. The transmission went out. What you may be able to do is check the transmission fluid level. If it is extremely low, it will not allow the gears to slip into the proper position to drive. However, if this problem is because of not having enough transmission fluid and your gears or the automatic clutch are damaged, you may end end up having to have costly repairs. What happened was either the gears in the transmission seized up, or the fluid level got so low that they will not build up enough pressure to slide the gears to drive position.
From my understanding you can move the shift lever but not move the car. Check the transmission fluid. You check it with the car on a level surface and the engine running in Park. If there is fluid on the dipstick see if it smells burned. If the fluid is not on the dipstick look under the car to see if it is covered with fluid. If you have a damaged or loose transmission pan you could lose fluid. If it is low on the dipstick add the proper type of fluid until it shows within the operating range. If the car moves then - take it to a transmission shop for an inspection.
