Default Ram Trans Trouble

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD short bed with a 3.9 V6 automatic. Overall the truck has been fine. The other day a backed it out of a parking space, drove down the driveway and turned into the street. As soon as it shifted and kicked into neutral. All I have now is reverse and park. The linkage is fine. 2 months ago I replaced the trans pan, gasket, filter and fluid, all with genuine Mopar parts and fluid. The fuild and the level are fine. Can someone please help? I have no idea where to start.

Hello and welcome to the site. Your trans. trouble sorry to say, sound serious. I'd have a professional check it out. Bite the bullet and hack up the diagnostic fee. It sounds like it blew an internal seal, ir cracked a piston. Which calls for an overhaul. But, I'd Have the line pressures read to make sure before you commit to replacing, or overhauling it.
