if you got stuck and no longer have forward gears my first thought would be to make sure your linkage didnt get messed up. no need to jump into a rebuild for no reason.
im hoping it doesnt need a rebuild ... im the kind that tries to think of everything you know cover all bases .... worst case is a rebuild or replacement to 4R70W which is what most of the cars i have had used (crown vic's) since it happend by getting stuck in snow my insurance is sending someone out to see if its covered (not holding breath) ... in fact how can anyone do that anyways?? look to see if it was cuz the snow LOL ???!!!???
unless you hit something and busted your pan and lost all your fluid and then you woudnt have any gear I dont see how you need to rebuild your tranny. linkage is likely bent not allowing for forward travel. why would you have called the insurance anyway? Filing a claim will likely jack your rates.
