Ok these are known for the transmissions to fail.You have all the symptoms of a failed pump.The transmission will need to be pressure tested to determine it for sure but that is most likely the cause of the failure with the symptoms and the check engine light.You have a few choices have it rebuilt or get a salvage unit for about 400 from a salvage yard and have it installed.So that would be 1400 parts and labor and it would be more if they rebuilt it and then reinstalled.it.These are the next steps.

Hoped this helped.
