Transmission not engaging?

In my brothers 2004 bmw 325i, he put the car in gear and tried to back out of our driveway and his rpm shot up to 3000 and the car barely moved and when he put it in drive to pull back in it did the same thing. We have no idea what is going on here

any help or ideas would be great, thank.

Check for big fluid leak.

Zf 5hp19 transmission?

Use PA Soft Scanner 1.4.x to read transmission errors if any.

Drain fluid, change filter and install correct amount of new ATF.

Engine swaps, HG, GM & ZF tranny rebuilds.
