New tranny oil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was fine until you changed the oil, right?
U have learned a painful lesson and should have researched matter. Old oil had same chemical characteristics as the seals in your tranny. They aged together. When you introduced the new oil you inserted a new partner into the marriage and now the seals are in a foreign environment and reacting adversely.

U now need a transmission job. Congrats.

How to change plugs and wires in 93 chevy g20 van 8cyl 5.0 liters

I replace plugs and wires one at a time, That way you don't lose track of which spark plug wire goes where. If your working under the vehicle, there are safety issues, safety is your responsibility. I hope you can read that? Working through the wheel wells may be your best bet. If you see a better way, use your best judgement. Of course you'll need proper tools.

Trans. modulator on a 93 g20 van ?

Depends on the type of transmission in the van. Most late model transmissions use electronic shift solenoids to control shift points. If the transmission in this van has a modulator valve, it is located on the passenger side of the van near the middle of the transmission with a vacuum hose attached to it.

I have a 1994 chevy Van G20 series it will go in reverse and in low gears but wont shift

Check your E-break first, secondly check to make sure you have no errors kicking from the control unit (engine computer module) which may or may not trigger a check engine light. Moreover it could be several things. Since it's an automatic the drive train maybe damaged, controller unite could be damaged, the transmission could (and probably) is dying. I'd have a professional mechanic check it out.

The speedometer cable should not have anything to do with changing the ball joint. it goes directly to the transmission on a 93. your grinding sounds like either someone didn't get the bearing back in the hub right or loose bolts on the wheel ..
