Question about Cars & Trucks
Check and make sure that there is enough fluid in the transmission by checking it when it is warmed up, on level ground with the engine running and the gear selector in park or neutral. If the fluid level is too low then add fluid until the level is within the "SAFE" range on the dipstick. If there isn't enough fluid that could cause the symptoms you described. Also, and more importantly, make sure that there isn't too much fluid in the transmission because the fluid can get bubbles in it by the rotating parts in the transmission which will cause hydraulic circuits weaken and basically will quickly wear out the friction materials in the transmission and it will need to be rebuilt. So if there is too much fluid, then I recommend draining the fluid and changing the filter then making sure it has the correct amount.

Are you getting the check engine light? If so the electronics may have gone out. You may not need a rebuild but you won't know till you pull the oil pan on the transmission and inspect the contents. You may also have lost the neutral safety switch. It is mounted on the drivers side of the transmission. Check those out first and let me know what codes you get.
For Ponchoboy; the clunking and hissing you hear are teminal root causes. Drop the oil pan and if it has a lot of filings and metal it is time for a rebuild.
Hope this helps; Rate me highly;

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.
