I have just replaced the oil filter in the auto box, after a few miles I lost all drive, to the point i called out recovery to bring it home

I am wondering of the filter could be at fault, or my fitting of it, as after taking off the pipe off the lower rad, there is no oil pumping in the slightest, just the odd drip, the levels were checked and were fine with engine running and hot

I am at a loss

Could the torque converter of lost fluid, if so how is it filled ???

I know nothing about auto boxes but because i can see your desperate to get this sorted i will say if it were me i'd just put as much oil in it it as i could physically fit , maybe jacking it up to get a bit more in , in the hope it would be forced to get where its supposed to be to restore drive . You can always let some out once its working - if it works ?
