I have driven the car about 1000 miles since I bought it and no mechanical problems of any kind, no leaks, no unusual noises or other issues. Last week I get into the car to take for a drive and shift into reverse and no movement. Shifted to all other gears and nothing. I thought possibly a shift cable issue but no problem with shifter movement and I observed the movement and it is moving the gears properly at the transmission. I checked the transmission fluid while warm and running and fluid was nice and red. Up to this time I had no shifting or engagement issues. I checked the trans fluid again while it was cold and the fluid was about a half inch above full line. I started the car and warmed it up to normal operating temp and checked the fluid while running and the fluid level was still the same (above the full line about 1/2 inch). I had checked the transmission fluid warm level a few weeks before this issue developed and it was right on the full line. I dropped the pan and the fluid was bright red with only a very small amount of black sludge at the bottom and no metal particles at all on the magnet. Filter and tube also in good position and condition. I shared these symptoms to a mechanic friend and he says it is probably torque converter or transmission pump. Before I pull the transmission and go to work, am I missing something easier?
