Based on some quick googling, it seems like the Mazda 6s have several known transmission issues.

The quick and easy ones are the park switch, transmission mounts, and burning up transmission fluid. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like any of those explain your problems.

Probably the most efficient fix would be to find a used transmission for a swap out.

Best of luck
