a little more info.. Filter and fluid changed, trans. back flushed to get old fluid out of torque converter.
Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

Hello, I'm Brandon. Before the fluid change was the transmission slipping?

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

If the transmission was already slipping most likely the internal clutch pack is already damaged.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

The old fluid was holding it together.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

The only way to fix it is to replace the transmission unit or try to dump it to old transmission fluid to see if it work.

not slipping but it had down shifted to 2nd and would not shift back. I was told the torque converter was locked up,not allowing the trans. to shift. I dropped the pan and the fluid looked like muddy water,changed the filter/fluid and the trans. worked ok for about 3,500mi. but now, it won't go into any gear.
Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

Yea, muddy water was due to the internal clutch pack falling above mixed with the transmission fluid.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

Now the torque converter gave up entirely.

Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

The only solution now is to replace the transmission with a rebuilt unit.
