Faulty TCM is common to both faults but I’d for sure check the fluid level first. I’d use a scanner to read the engine speed sensors - if it starts and runs, likely not the problem. I’d also try and read the TCM itself. If the scanner is designed to read the TCM and it won’t, then likely the TCM is bad.

If you don’t have the tools or don’t understand what I posted, see your local independent auto shop.
