Transmission problems with new install

I needed to replace the transmission on my '03 Deville. The new tranny is all bolted up and filled with fluid to the middle of the cold mark. But when I started the car and shifted through all the gears I'm still got getting anything out of the transmission. I pulled the cooler lines to see if any fluid was pumping, but I'm not getting anything comming out of the lines.

I'm about to pull all my hair out. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could have done wrong or what to check next? And yes I did put the torque converter bolts in.

Sorry to tell you but the level will change depending on running or not/cold or hot.
OP can't get the car to move Chris...

OP was the trans empty when you put it in? Sounds to me like not enough fluid and pump just can't pick it up yet.
Well, hopefully that fixes her up. Sucks for sure...
