Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since the coolant was bone dry, there is a good possibility that there is engine damage. Your best bet is trying to get codes off your computer. When you don't have coolant, the engine overheats and causes engine damage. Even though your problem could be a transmission issue, it may be because of engine damage as well. Because it is hard to tell what parts were effected, you will need the vehicle scanned on a machine at a shop. You may be able to avoid all of this by getting codes of the vehicle.

My car is making an awful groaning grinding noise noise when it starts. The noise stops after it starts. Put my foot on the brake it starts again. put thr car in reverse no problem put it in,drive it...

It's your exhaust mounts or broken exhaust bolts. It does it in drive st idle n under load because the motor is sitting in rubber mounts made to dampen vibration. Therefore the motor tilts to the left in reverse pulling the exhaust away from your under carraige, and to the right in drive causing the loose exhaust to vibrate against something. Check your heat shields also. They fall apart n do the same noise. Piece of cake.

Fairly new car to develop a transmission problem, get the fluid checked right away, one qt low could be the problem. But where the fluid went is the problem. Have you noticed a puddle under the car ever? Any dash board lights on? Get it checked out. hope this helps.

Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

When i put my car in reverse it won't move but will drive forward perfect and is full of transmission fluid

Assuming this is an automatic transmission, odds are you have lost a band in your transmission, this will require a rebuild,  you may also notice it will fail to shift into high gear as well?

My son has a 1972 chevy impalla.... it starts up right away but when you put it in drive or reverse it wont move.

Have you checked the trans fluid level. Make sure the car is running and in park when you check the fluid level. If the fluid is full either the transmission is bad or you have a linkage issue. I hope this is helpful.
