ok thank you for that information this is a somewhat common problem with these transmissions

what you are going to find and is the only thing that will cause no movement in drive gear selection with full fluid is the forward sprag is damaged or has failed inside the transmission which when fails or does not hold this will happen

i am sorry to say the transmission will need to come out and apart to have it replaced
