Sounds like the shifter was inbetween gears. Sometimes when I'm shifting to drive I'll get it in between 3rd and 4th and it will try to go but won't go like it does when it's in gear for real.

Stops shifting after i start driving

Allison transmissions are fairly reliable. don't really burn up unless you run them dry to many times. First you need to have the codes read. Even some engine codes will make transmission not run right. Then I would be checking the wires to the transmission for the ECM/TCM (Ohm test them). Along with the plugs for corrosion.

You have a failure in the transmission or the shift solenoids or wiring to them or the TCM. I would get the Transmission Control Module (TCM) tested for fault codes first. Did you have a check engine light come on?

I would go going along just fine, when all of a sudden the power to the wheels is absent. The engine revs but no power to wheels

Have you checked the transmission fluid level, it should also be pink in color. Check with engine running and trans in "Park". If the fluid level is okay you need the transmission looked at by a reputable shop (consult your local BBB about trans shops or visit your Ford dealer).

Transmission wont shift

Start by checking the transmission fluid level. Check it in park with the engine running.

Since this happened while you were driving I would bet that it is not a shift linkage problem and if the fluid level is fine your transmission may need repair or replacement.
