Definetly have some internal issues inside your tranny.
I woudln't drive it anymore to keep metal debris from trashing what you have left inside that is good.
I'd pull it and take the front pump out and start disassembling the broken parts may just fall into your hands so be careful.
Goodluck, Charles

Sounds like the low/reverse clutch or center support sprag is locked. Good luck....
Put a glide in it and end your problems.

Sounds like the intermediate roller let go, this will jam up 2nd at times. Internal Failure.

That would be a sprag. I wouldn't reccomend you trying to rebuild it yourself since your not familar with them already,
I'd take it to a local tranny shop or someone more familar with rebuilding transmissions, I'm sure there's other damage there and just sticking another sprag in is just asking for trouble.
Things you can do while its being rebuilt would be flushing out the converter and trans cooler lines and the cooler it self BEFORE you go back with the rebuilt trans.
A spray can of brake clean or a can d natured alcohol will work good on the cooler and lines just spray the brake clean in the lines or pour the alcohol in and use a rubber tipped air nozzle and blow them out till the solvent runs clear out the other end.
Also you'll need to clean the valve body as well but the tranny shop should take care of that if you have it rebuilt.
Goodluck, Charles

You can get cooler flush in a can at some of the parts stores. Broken intermediate sprag.
