Question 93 e36 not going into any gears

I bought a 93 e36 which had a transmission leak. i was driving it home and luckily when i got to my neighborhood, as I pressed on the gas, there was no acceleration. I tried putting it in any other gear, and the car was just at a stand still. any suggestions? the leak is in between the transmission pan and the engine.

Sounds like your tranny is dry. May want to take it to AAMCO (you have a GM transmission so they should know what to do) and have them take a look-see for much cheaper than what a BMW dealer will charge and do wrong anyways.

When I did my transmission fluid change I followed this DIY, easy to follow and very well written.
