46RE has no forward gears, reverse only

Who can help me with this problem? It is a 2000 Durango R/T, 5.9, 4wd, 46RE transmission. I have dropped the pan, installed the low speed governor solonoid and the pressure sensor, and of course cleaned the valve body, adjusted the bands (front band was loose enough that the actuator bar had fallen out), and new filter/oil)
After all that, it made no difference except I had a big red stain on my garage floor and the wife's car is outside, NOT good.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I copy pasted the title of your thread into Google.

had this to say:

Sounds like the rear clutch is toast. Manual low and reverse both use the rear band, but the rear clutch needs to work to go forward in any gear.

Hate to give you the bad news, but it sounds like it is time for a rebuild/replace.

Sounds like you're all on the right track with the low gear clutches being toast.
Once the trans is put in any forward gear, the low gear clutches engage and stay engaged. If they're gone, you'll get no forward gears.
If you put the shifter in manual low and it moves, but not in Drive, it's probably the sprague.
If it will not move in manual low, or Drive, either one, you've probably toasted the clutches.
