Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 29+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

Most likely an internal failure of the clutches in the transmission. Either a Low/reverse clutch is bad or the overrunning clutch has failed..

Transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to find the cause..

Keep me posted...

Thank you,

Robert
