What happens when you turn the key? Nothing? Clicking noise? Turns over as normal but never fires up? It is possible something got bumped or forgotten to reconnect near the transmission. If its an automatic try shifting into other gears then turn the key, its possible the gear sensor got moved. Your spark plugs themselves shouldn't be the problem since you already drove twice with them, but I would check all spark plug wires at both ends for good contact. If the wires were reused check the inside for corrosion.

Might be that you accidentally disconnected the crank sensor close to the transmission, this gives a no start condition without a check engine light on most cars...

SOURCE: 1998 Honda CRV stalls once it warms up then after

Also try the crv recall replacing the ignition mechanism where you insert the key. I have the same problem and was solved after reading about it in one blog.. it is free. It appears that it got shorted and will automatically kill the engine. after a while it will be cold again and you will be able to start the engine..

SOURCE: I have a 94 Accord EX, I changed the CV axles and

You will need to get the transmission fluid chamber completely fused and cleaned, and then add the new fluid again.At present gears are slipping, because there is no viscosity /thickness in the fluid to hold grip for gears.So they are slipping.That faulty liquid/fluid which you added must be getting mixed with new fluid and causing this problem.Getting the transmission flushed at local transmission repair shops is advisable.But you can do this your self too.The procedure is as follows:----- Use Honda ATF if possible:-------- Honda Auto-Trans Flush = 1 case (12 qrts) Honda ATF aprox $50. 1 new drain bolt washer $1.
1) Put the front of the car up on jackstands with the wheels off the ground. Put a large container under drain plug.
2) Remove the transmission drain plug (3/8" drive ratchet works fine). Let transmission drain and wipe sludge off drain plug.
3) Reinstall drain plug and snug (not tighten). Fill transmission with three quarts of ATF.
4) Start engine and shift into drive. Gently accelerate and let transmission upshift through the gears (don't go over 50 MPH).
5) Step on brakes and bring speedo to 0.
6) Shift into reverse and accelerate to 20 MPH.
7) Bring speedo back to 0 with brakes. Shift to park and shut off engine.
8) Repeat steps 2 through 7 TWO MORE TIMES.
9) Drain the transmission once more. Reinstall drain plug and tighten firmly (don't forget to reinstall crush washer).
10) Remove jackstands and put vehicle on level ground.
11) Fill transmission with 2 1/2 quarts of ATF. Start engine. Shift to drive, then reverse, then put back in park and shut off engine.
12) Check transmission fluid level. Top off if needed to bring fluid level to the top of the crosshatch marks on the dipstick.
-------------- Then try this will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Changed spark plugs now runs rough and has thick white exhaust

Changing the plugs probably had nothing to do with it.
White smoke is usually a sign the engine is burning coolant or trans fluid. You might want to check those fluid levels.
If the coolant is low, you may have a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

As i accelerate the gas my car dont want to go after ive drove it like for about 15 min. could it be my transmission

Yes it could be the transmission if the motor sounds like it is speeding up, and the car just won't go. If that is the case, check the transmission fluid to see if it is full, and or the filter and fluid may have to be changed.

Car wont start has power steering fluid in mufflar

That's most likely transmission fluid because the diaphragm on your trans that changes the shift point, the vacuum line hooked to the carb is sucking trans fluid right into the engine and now it's fouled the plugs and won't start. Change the plugs, unhook the vacuum line to the tranny, plug the vacuum port and re-start the engine. You know now you have to replace the vacuum unit on the trans.

Transmission 1994 lincoln towncar- 89000 miles

I would not conclude you have a trans problem,as some other issue maybe be confusing the shift stratagy.
The temperature issues and time driven are the key here.
I would check for stored codes first.
Then go over the basics-Spark Plugs,Ignition,Egr Valve,Vacuum Leaks,MAF Sensor and so forth.
Clean up the engine driveablity issues first.

Becareful when considering changing the trans fluid. That will not fix anything and may cause it to slip more,if you get to that point in your testing

The time parked is not a concern ,as I feel these issues where there before.
If the engine is not running correctly ,you will get just what you discribed,with the shifting up and down
