Drained it. Its burnt and glittery. Started the car and the strange screaching was not as bad as b 4. Put it in gear and nothing till i brought up the rpm's to 4 or 5k then a screach and it wanted to engage. Reverse did same thing at 4 or 5k rpm. Then it didnt even want to engage after that.. ?

Sounds like a transmission failure.
