Start by checking the fluid level. This must be checked when the engine is idleing in park.

OK. Put down the keys. Go get yourself an ice cold beverage, and tell us what you were doing when the car lost its go. Racing? Hard 1-2 shift? That is what happened when I lost my C-4, twice. I then became 'converted' to toploader school. Hope it's not that bad and the fluid is the problem.

Sounds like one of the bands is to tight and is preventing proper operation of tranny. Start by properly adjusting the bands, then see what happens and let us know.
