Sounds like something let go in the transmission. Or the gear selector isnt' adjusted etc. That might be a stretch though.

I'd check by moving the selector around and trying to get any gear to catch.
Check the color of the fluid and tell us how many miles since your last trans service, any previous problems or rebuilds etc?

Yea broken tanny. You bring your broken tranny here or ill bring my broken tranny there, and we can have a broken tranny party. lol It kinda feels like it wants to go into gear. I can kinda feel it goign into gear. But thats proboly mind over matter. ANd give it gas and the car laughs at me and doesnt do anything. its like a fat person saying there going to go on a diet and then there eat a donut. My car is a fat man. lol A Big Black Shinny Fat Man.

Have you upgraded your transmission or thought about doing it? Dave Norris runs Tripleedgeperformance.com and does an amazing job on transmissions from what I've heard, researched and found. I've already begun talking to him since my trans was already beefed up and rebuilt about 5 times. Yeah... I don't use bolts..it'* held in with velcro. 1 hour and 20 minutes from start to being out. That'* all it takes with my car.

I checked car-part.com and there'* a couple up your way for $500 with low miles. It'* not too bad labor wise to swap one,.
