    Most likely the transmission is shot. The reason you can get it going in manual is the manual modes run higher pressure than the auto modes so the little extra pressure gets what is left of the clutch or band to grab enough to get you rolling. Dont count on that working for long. Every time it moves you are lucky. One of these times is going to be the last time.
