Hi,

Ok, with fluid level being correct, possible causes include failed transmission fluid pump, obstruction in the hydraulic chambers/ports, completely failed torque converter, plate separation in the valve body resulting in pressure loss, cracked band or clutches, or other internal failure.

In all cases this is going to require removing the transmission and tearing down for inspection and rebuild/overhaul as needed upon results of inspection

If for any reason, you can't rate my answer OKAY, GOOD, or EXCELLENT/3 STARS OR HIGHER today. Please reply and let me know why, so I can help more/better. All follow up responses are FREE, after completing the required rating
