Problems such replacing or adjusting clutches, replacing or adjusting bands, and replacing gears will require you to dismantle the transmission. IF your fluid smells burnt or is brown/black it is from overheating. Changing it may solve some slippage but maybe not. Short version: you need the tranny overhauled. Don't waste $$$ on the fluid change, Rebuilt transmissions can gave several year long warranties, and can include labor so check round.

According to " Fixing common transmission slip problems is easy once you have determined the cause. If you notice that there is low automatic transmission fluid then all you need to do is fill it with enough fluid to allow the transmission to work properly.
If there are any worn out parts like the transmission gear or a defective shift gear, it is important that this is replaced as soon as possible. In some cases you may just need to readjust the shift gear instead of replacing it entirely. In the event that the transmission bands are worn out, just replace the worn out bands to fix the problem."

My peugeot 207 is stuck in third gear, i changed the clutch cylinder took it for test drive and when put in third gear it wouldnt come out. Stuck in it now any answers for me as im confused.

check the yoke that it has not slipped past, further get someone to press the pedal then you can check if it moves at all. if the car is switched of then you should be able to take it out of 3rd, if not then theres probably fault in the gearbox

it sound like there is a problem with the synchronizers and or the gears them selves. either way you will need to have the trans rebuilt before you can not put it into any gear.

You probably need a new, used or rebuilt transaxle installed. I would have a junkyard swap one in if the cars is in good condition, or sell the car for parts if it needs lots of work or has high miles.
