The first thing to check is the fluid. If you have a dipstick, start there. If it needs fluid, get the right stuff, there are about 15 different kinds staring you in the face, you have no idea which one it is, your owner's manual will tell you. If it is full, you have a problem. If it doesn't have a stick, you have 2 plugs on the side of the tranny, one for level, one for filling. Pull the bottom plug out, if fluid seeps out it is full, if not, pull the top plug and fill it up till it seeps out, then plug it back up, bottom first. Now, when tranny's go bad, or get hot, or something happens, they go into a safe mode to prevent further damage, yours might be in safe mode, usually you can get home, slowly, I would suspect the torque converter or the drive shaft broke. Check it out, hope this helps.

Check the Transmission Dipstick OIL level to ensure the level is up to the FULL mark. A low oil level will be insufficient to keep the drive engaged as the system gets hot, and will eventually damage the internal gearing, and also the seals.

Your transmission and cv axle is running dry. Grease it up, fill it up and try it again. And tighten whatever is loose that is allowing it to leak.

Try the Transmission fluid. If the level is low then the hydraulic vacuum type operation is ineffective
