Hello, the first thing I would do is check the fluid level and make sure it's at the proper level. If the fluid level is ok try manual 1st and see if the transmission will move?
Correct but rather than drive go into 1st or I call it manual 1st. This is still drive but with braking.
How long was it parked for?
Yes I am. That doesn't really add up. How many miles are on this? Do you have a way to test line pressure?
Electrical shift solenoids are used to shift the transmission between gears. If the vehicle has a programmer I would remove it. If the vehicle was towed I would make sure the manual linkage is connected on the transmission. As the engine runs and the torque converter spins the transmission builds pressure. This pressure is controlled by line pressure. You can use an oil pressure gauge to actually test line pressure.
Is it oil leaking or transmission fluid?
