My vehicle leaks [transmission](/topics-transmission-ford/) fluid rapidly It does not move in drive unless i put transmission fluid in it but once the fluid leaks all out it doesn't move again do i need a new transmission or is it something inside the transmission that needs to be changed?

I just bought a 05 Impala v6 automatic. It's very used, and when I first started driving it, I did notice that the shifting felt like it was slipping. Also, the gear shirt bar that moves the lever is in bad shape. It was having a difficult time getting into 4th gear on the freeway drive home, so I used cruise control, thinking that would take some pressure off of the transmission. I don't know if that's relevant, just saying everything. I got off the freeway and stopped at a light . The car wouldn't move. I tried push starting it in neutral like you would a manual, apparently autos don't do that ( I really really hate auto trans and I don't know anything about them as a result). Then I turned the car off and started it up again. It drove for about 1/16 of a mile at about 4000 RPMs. I did that about 5 times til I just got home. I do have a quart of trans fluid and I was going to try flushing that, but it doesn't seem as simple as just slipping.
