Default Transmission died?

Ok so I was on my way home from out of town so I could get to work this morning. Everything was normal feeling while I drove on the freeway. After getting off the freeway I hit a red light. When I took off, it went into first gear roughly. Hit another red light and when I took off the car seemed like it was in a high gear so I let off the gas. It seemed like it shifted so I hit the gas again, lightly, and started gaining speed slowly. I made it home, put it in park and heard an odd sound from under the hood, like if something was put into a running ran. Gave it a lil gas and I could hear it. Then it went away. Now, I cant get out of park. The shifter moves but nothing else happens and the sound isn't there, just briefly when I first parked.

I had to head to work and wont be able to check it til tuesday but my pops said he would. He said it may be the torque converter bolts and if it is then im lucky. Just thought I would see what anyone else could share with me about this (that would help atleast). If all else fails then it looks like Ill be fixing the Z sooner than planned. Thanks!
