Difficult to say, I would ask, "Why did you change your Actuator" Making Assumptions that there might have been an existing issue before you choose to change or repair the Actuator. But in general no the actuator has no effect on the Transmission slipping, have you done a filter and trans oil change? verify your oil levels...

2011 ford Torres.transmission slipping,could it be a censor,computer problem?where is the dip stick for tranny?

run the fault codes
shifting all over the place could be problem wiring/connections, TCM, ECM , transmission oil pressure , dirty oil, problem vacuum actuator, leaking vacuum hoses to actuator
Check with a service center for the dip stick but Ford along with other manufacturers have done away with the dip stick
take it to a specialist transmission service shop for a proper diagnosis but be wary if a new transmission is suggested
It is working but not as it should which suggest mainly , wiring, or TCM problems

1999 Volvo S40 cannot remove key

What make vehicle ? Most all vehicles have a safety system .Don't try an force anything you'll break it !
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. They also have this on column mounted shifters !

Either something blocking or binding the actuator or actuator or door failure or calibration,if you hear a clicking noise when changing to vent mode under dash area this indicates the actuator internally slipping and will need to be replaced

Infinity I 35 trunk lid will not release when actuator is activated. Can hear it working, but will not release

You have to get to the trunk lock mechanism from the inside through the back seat. From center of the lock mechanism, just to the driver's side is a "switch" the needs to be "slid up". After that, should work like before. For the pic orientation, you are looking from outside in & over.

Actuator was replaced and now transmission is slipping

When you actuator, I assume you mean the one for the front drive splined disconnect. This would not cause transmission slippage. With your mileage, the transmission is due for an overhaul.

My son replaced his clutch master cylinder on his 2001 Camaro 3.8 because the clutch would re-engage after 1 second (or so) while the pedal was depressed. He now needs to bleed the line/master cylinder...

1/4" or equivilent hose will do, the actuator, or slave cyl, is installed by the clutch plate, inside the transmission, but there should be a cut out in the case where the bleeder is located. loosen this up with a hose slipped onto it, and submerg it in fluid, then just pump the heck out of it, tighting after it is pumped, then pump it again/close it-pump it/close it...etc.

4 wheel drive dont work you can hear it lock in but dont get anything out of tha front chevy 1995 z71 silverdo

Check your wire harness to your front axle actuator. The front actuator is electrical and common for the wire harness or the actuator it self will go bad and will need to be replaced. You can pick up a new actuator at Napa and GM has a new updated front axle actuator which is more reliable then the oil one that is used in your K1500.

1998 gmc sonoma push button 4x4 busting diaphram vacuum actuator

On top of the transfer case is a vacuum switch with 3 vacuum lines connected to it. This switch controls when vacuum is applied to the vacuum actuator. This switch can fail partly and allow fluid from the transfer case to be sucked up into the vacuum lines and anything connected to them as well. When you replaced the actuator before, did you notice any oily fluid inside of it?
