Hey how are you

1- ok so fluid good no metal shavings correct ?

2- how many miles on it now ?

3- We need to have it scanned with a dealer scanner or equivalent that can communicate with TCM,Transmission control module and retrieve faults codes iff possible , you can post them back here for me .

4- what warning lights are on at this time

5- Usually if it quits suddenly , it will be more electrical, module or internal solenoids not internal clutches and requires a complete rebuild , you would have felt gradual slippage but you said happened suddenly

For now lets try a master reset ,if no scanner available to you now , let see if it is a module and we can reset it

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You
