Yes...change it again, and perhaps a third time, just from the pan drain plug. Use the cheapest fluid of the correct kind you can find for intermediate flushes, then good stuff on final flush. I really wish that they would have kept the converter drain plug, but they had to make them stupid proof because people were putting longer ones in and damaging the internals.
If it's slipping, don't drive it, but let it idle so the fluid can get hot and boil off any water. If mud got in there it may need to be taken apart and cleaned.

My 2002 jeep tranmission over temp comes on and off while on my way from work just had a oil change about 1 month ago and had tranmission flush in september what dose this mean

Having once owned a trans repair shop,
I would prefer you not flush the system

Due to the vehicles age ,and not knowing
if the fluid was changed every 30,000 miles

My Past Professional Opinion tells me your
trans is most likely slipping. ,thus over heating

You could check the fluid level but that won't do

Your most likely are close to a rebuild situation

Figure about $1700.00

I have an automatic trans mission that doesnt go

The forward gears slip but dose the reversr gear slip as well if not your problem is either the forward band is worn out ,,,,or the forward pump is playing up and also it could be the thing that starts it all off is the filter in the auto sump is clogged up with metal or drive band dust is the colour of the auto oil dark or dirty..
When was the trans oil last changed.
