Hello, it basically sounds like you had a a major transmission failure where it started to slip into neutral and a transmission componet inside the trans let loose. All you can do at this point is verify it is full of fluid and doesnt smell burnt, which it might since it appears to have a transmission failure, if its low on fluid an inspection for a transmission fluid leak would need to be done and a diagnostic check for codes with a scan tool. But sounds like the trans is smoked
