If it's an automatic transmission,the fluid could be low.If it's a manual transmission,the clutch could be bad. If FWD, be sure to check the half shafts for breakage. Ocassionally the joints can break. Otherwise if it is an auto and the fluid is full, the trans is bad. Dan the tranny man Could be the speed sensor. Take it off of the jack stands. That happened to me once. Some friends of mine put my rear axle on jack stands. When I came racing out of the building and hopped in to my car to beat the other guys to the mess hall, I threw it in to gear and it just shuddered but didn't move. I kept the jack stands.
