Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
Within a matter of days, No Warning lights, between 40-65 mph the car would studder and act like it was choking, and then it would be fine until I had to slow down or speed up. Car was working yesterday, now this morning car starts but only neutral works. Won't go into drive or reverse. Looks like there's too much transmission fluid but how can that be if I needed to take it in for an oil change and hadn't put any fluids in?

Too much trans fluid would not prevent it from going into gear. Do you have a check engine light on? This is probably going to be expensive. Get it to a transmission shop.

Most likely the "reaction shell" teeth are stripped. This is a common failure in the 4L60E. The transmission will need to be removed, and the reaction shell replaced. Any reputable transmission shop should be able to replace the reaction shell. They may advise you that your transmission needs to be rebuilt. Either way, it is somewhat of a costly repair.

Had the same problem with my 1999 Blazer (S10) a baffle broke loose in the catalytic converter causing exhaust blockage while accelerating. When idling or driving slowly the baffle did not shift enough to cause a problem. Replaced the catalytic converter from Pep Boys (direct fit) for about $150. Had to get the gaskets at NAPA though. Runs like a top now. Hope this helps. PS: sell the catalytic converter to a recycling place. Good for a few bucks due to the platinum in the converter.

This is a sensor issue. It can be from a couple of different sensors. The VSS, or vehicle speed sensor is the main one. Loose or faulty wiring can cause it, a faulty PCM can cause it, or the Throttle Position Sensor can cause it.
