Can you turn the engine by hand while watching if the torque converter is turning?

What I would do at this point is to loosen up the transmission oil cooler line, the return line (not the inlet line) and start the car for 5-10 seconds. What you would look for is to see if you have any pressure, or any fluid coming out of the trans cooler return line. If there is no fluid, then you're either looking at a bad pump or cooling line blockage.

A bad shifter won't cause the car not to move, it will make the car move, but in limp mode.

However, if the shifter isn't connected to the shifter linkage, then the car won't move at all regardless of the shifter position. This is kinda stupid, but check to see if the shifter linkage is actually connected or not.

Bad torque converter won't stop the car from moving....but it will feel like the car has a bad clutch.

Go down to the basics first, check to see if mechanic actually installed the shifter linkage to the shifter, then check the oil cooler line, then go from there.

If the shifter link is not connected at all, and the transmission lever is stuck at Park, The starter interlock contact would be OPEN which would allow the car to start in Park. When the gear is changed to D or R, the starter interlock contact would be closed, and the TCM would look for the ATF temperature sensor reading at the same port. As the shifter link is not connected, the starter interlock contact would be left OPEN which would cause a fault 115 or 116 to come up at the TCM (no CEL).

So it is easy to monitor the starter interlock/ATF temperature status information with the scanner to see if it changes as the gear moves from P to D or R. If no change, then something wrong with the linkage.

When you have that many solenoids go like that it a connection problem more than likely, so someone forgot that little piece of metal shield around the circular connector(Legal name is pilot bushing) that just melts that male connector(circular electrical connector and the connection at the conductor plate) that can cause a connection problem. I seen this once on a customers car, yet you may not have any fluid leaks either.

It being a AMG heat is a bigger problem, and everything is tight, so check that harness going to the transmission computer(the TCM). Check the TCM connection too.

Ik. So yesterday, i lifted the rear end of the car using 2 jacks. I start the car, put it into drive. Tires barely spin at all. Give it gas, still tires barely move. Put it into park, tires stop. Put into reverse, tires move forward as if im in drive. Very slowly, barely moving. What is causing this? Should i just swap the transmission ?

Are you sure you have the ATF in the transmission at the correct levels ? Are you sure that the ATF filter is installed or installed correctly ? If you have no codes at all, the solenoids should be fine electrically.

I bought a dipstick that was supposed to be for this car. Transmission level says it is full. The filter is on properly as far as I know. Could this maybe not be a transmission issue at all but something completely different

Update on transmission issue. Bought a used but tested 2002 e55 amg transmission from scrapyard in Rancho Cordova. $500 plus $80 to deliver it. Took out the old tranny, put newer one in. Added fluids. Cleared codes with snap on scanner. Omfg. I never completely appreciated this car until it finally ran. Wow. I'm going to modernize the electronics on this car. Add a Stereo, navi, bluetooth, back up cam, xm/Sirius, etc. And run this one. I'll post pics when I'm done.
