Hi, most likely you put the transmission fluid into the wrong dipstick tube or you have not added enough fluid to the transmission.
I've attached a picture of the transmission dipstick tube cap below.
Did your cap look like that or was it a red cap?
red cap and i change the Dorset plate
If the cap was a red cap you inadvertently have put the transmission fluid into the motor.
You need to drain the engine oil and refill it with the proper amount of motor oil and then add the proper amount of transmission fluid to the tube for the transmission.
It is a very common mistake that is made when replacing the transmission fluid.

If the cap that you removed to add the transmission fluid looked like the one below then you have added the transmission fluid to the motor. Do not run the motor until you drain all of the motor oil and refill it. Then locate the transmission filler tube with the black cap over it and add your transmission fluid. The tube is located at the passenger side rear of the motor.
Let me know if you need more help with it.
