Unhappy 99 Automatic Won't Drive Forward

Hey, long time reader first time poster.
I blew a coolant hose a month ago, coasted a few hundred feet. Pulled into a gravel lot, turned around using little power and parked it. Had to get it towed. When I got the coolant problem fixed, found that it won't move forward in drive it just revs.
I can kind of feel it go into reverse and it rolls back(I'm on a slight hill). Same goes for neutral, we can push forward in neutral. Can't really feel it go into drive and it just rolls back and revs if I give it some gas. It stalls if I put it in second gear and stalls if I shift around to much. Got under it and the linkage move fine...I guess. On a side note the fuel pump( that's what I guess makes this noise) stays on when I turn key, not start the truck just turn on. It never did that before, it would make slight humming sound then turn off.

Sorry for the long post not good at condensing.

Was it towed on a flat bed or pulled behind a wrecker? Is it 4x4?

It is a 4x4. I’ve had to have it towed on a flatbed about 4 times(I “fix” a lot of things) since I got it in 2014. This one was the longest. Someone else asked that on another forum I posted in, is extensive flatbed use a problem?
