Well i would try with the more simpler of things!! Check and make sure the flywheel isnt broke and locked the motor um in to place!! It is a possiblity that you broke a rod or even borke the crankshaft!!

All the transmisssion fluid came out and it does drive but it's very hard to go forward and backward

Don't drive it without the transmission fluid, It will tear it up if it hasn't already.

Both rear wheels are locked up on 2000 Dodge Neon

Had this problem a really long time ago. Dad died and his fairly new car sat in the garage for six months. When we tried to get it out of there, it may as well have been welded to the floor. Flat-bedded to my shop, took rear drums off, found nothing, put it back together and it never did it again. Only thing I can think of is that moisture in the air swelled the linings, engaging them. Trying to drag the car till the brakes disengage will cause flat spots on your tires. Beating on drums may cause them to go out of round. Remove drums to make sure nothing else is going on in there and you should be fine.

I have a 96' Dodge Neon, and my car wont start

Try looking to see if your injectors are clogged or if fuel is getting to the fuel rail. You can take the hose that is on the fuel rail off then try starting it or just pump the gas pedal and you should see gas coming out. I had a similar problem with my 97 neon and this was my problem just try and see, you never know.
