1994 PONTIAC GRAND AM SE transaxle (P-R-N-D-3-2) shifter pattern VIN #1G2NE5535RC729151, if I put transaxle in drive or reverse it goes into gear but wont move engine cant be reved up very much when its in gear it feels like im holding the brakes on and pressing on the gas at the same time (transaxle is NOT slipping at all) car will not roll in neutral untill I kill the engine, transaxle will engage if i rev the engine up high and then slam the shifter into any gear then it goes into gear and drives just fine but doing this is bad and will destroy the transaxle for sure, this has me baffeled bigtime, any help would be greatly appreciated
