have you checked to see if the fluid is low??
Yes I checked it. It was in the proper range I might just drain the converter and pan and filter with mercon v. any ideas or tips?

Did you make sure the old filter's o-ring was out before installing the new filter? If the old o-ring is still in there, the new filter can drop out, leading to no volume (lack of lube will make pump whine) and no pressure(no pressure = no gears).
Yes I got the old o ring out the pump does whine in drive but I have reverse good and strong
