2004 VUE 3.5L
Default no movement in any gear

Hey Guys,
So i had my tranny rebuilt 2 years ago on my 2004 Vue V6 3.5. The other day it shuddered really hard at take off. Next stop sign no movement. i barley made it home frome a block away. I would only go into gear if i turned the engine off started and put in gear again. iv'e been doing drain and fills with honda dw-1. First i thought filter was clogged i did a drain and fill not much metel in there. now im thinking its the TCC solenoid but im at a loss. on startup theres a grinding/buzz noise that seems to be coming from the flywheel/torque converter area. Restricted atf pump? I just dont know no CEL so i figure its something internal which totally sucks. any input? Also this makes me wanna get an inline atf filter anyone try one of those?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

CEL won't tell you much about the transmission. Think you need a more advanced scan tool to read the transmission module codes. And I didn't know you could drain the torque converter on these cars. If nothing came out of the plug, check the fluid level and top it off.

That definitely sounds like the pump went out.
