    Yes the transmissions is automatic. I have changed the transmission fluid and filter and there were no shavings.

    Is it an automatic or manual transmission?

    If automatic it could be that the shift linkage is broken or loose not allowing the transmission to go into gear. The bigger possibility is that you have lost the forward pump in the transmission and you will need to carry it to a transmission shop.

I would check the linkage and if it is all connected and working then the problem is internal. A pump can go and leave no shavings or metal flakes in the pan.

To check the linkage put the truck on ramps, support it with jackstands crawl under the truck while someone sits in the drivers seat with the parking break on. Watch the linkage levers on the transmission as the person in the truck moves the shift lever (while firmly mashing the breaks) also listen for a distinct "clicking" sound in the transmission as it moves through the gears. Again if the linkage is okay and it sounds like things are moving with the shift leaver then the problem is most likely a worn pump.

Sounds like you need a transmission rebuild :(
Typical symptom of transmission failure, especially in a vehicle as old as yours. Have you ever replaced the transmission fluid or filter? No? Hmmmm... ;)
