Yes definitely. One way to check for fluid flow....fire the car up on a cold engine. Check dipstick before you crank it. Let it sit for 30 minutes. See if dipstick level drops. It'll read high cold. Fluid has to be hot to check actual level. if level drops, your pump is fine. And you need a torque converter most likely

Wow, nice video Bull Geek, that makes it very clear now and does sound like what happened to mine. Doesn't sound like anything I can do at home so my boss's inlaws have a Firestone garage I'll probably take it to.
Thanks a lot people for the help and suggestions, this is an awesome site.

Check that connector for the shifter cable to the transmission linkage, eliminate the simple stuff first. They are known to break and the symptoms your car shows could be caused by as simple a problem as the linkage being disconnected.
