Thanks for the info. If the fluids are all full then under the floor plate check to see if the drive shaft is turning fast from the engine drive damper to the transmission for a possible failed drive damper. Also inspect the filters internally for any metal/debris indicating internal mechanical problems. It will be a small investment for a set of filters to know if there is any signs or failure inside them. Let me know

If the shaft is turning providing power to the transmission then see what is in the transmission filter and the oil condition. Check to be sure the transmission control linkages is also fully engaging from the controls as well. Click this link to help with parts locations and verification.
