Can someone give me some ideas here?

I have a feeling this is gonna cost me!
If the vehicle is going into gear, but not moving theres probably a problem with the trans and not the shifter. Could be a simple as being low on fluid or as bad as needing parts replaced like the torque converter or entire trans rebuild. If there were absolutely no symptoms before this happened like slipping then I'd start with fluid, but then you need to find out how the fluid escaped.
