95 toyota camry starts but doesn't drive or goes into reverse? 200k. 1st it was reverse only reversed when cold after a drive or warm up ir stalls to not reverse unless i reeev the gas pedal. 2nd going forward went out after a small tranny leak?? Added 1 quart of tranny fluid an mistakenly forgot to put the dipstick back in.....it drove when started up but then it broke down??

My car has 206 miles.
