Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Never had any transmission problem, can a transmission go out on me like that without giving me any signs?
This just happened to my 02 eclipse gt automatic on Thanksgiving 2012 . Its ur torque converter , the torque converter engages forward and reverse drive... Sorry to say but u need a transmission rebuild.... I just swapped mine to a 5 speed for around $2000

Don't shot the messenger but without tranny fluid your transmission may have cooked itself. I hope I am wrong but I expect you'll need to rebuild or replace the tranny.
Wish I could offer better news,

Checking automatic transmission fluid
The 5R55N transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for
fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid.
However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not
working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you
notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
