Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

It sounds like you have the bearing on the output shaft or wheel shaft of the transmission that has gone bad or locked up on you. This is the first thing that I would look at. I have seen this happen often and you end up having to tear the transmission apart and replace the output shaft bearing.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
