Sounds like your lock up solenoid in your transmission is bad. don't know what kind of car or truck you have to let you know where it's at.

Changed tranny fluid lost fifth gear

Start your vehicle and keep your foot on the brake. Move the transmission lever through the entire range of gears including reverse, several times.

Then check the transmission fluid level.

It doesn't sound as though you have too much to worry about. Valves in a transmission unit can become 'glazed' and sticky. When this happens they don't open and close at the correct pressure/speeds.

If need be, repeat the same process with your foot on the brake and the vehicle in D. Give the engine a few revs, but keep your foot on the brake... you're trying to build up gearbox pressure and move a sticking valve.

If there's no improvement consider using a gearbox additive - there are many on the market which will free sticking valves - and take your vehicle for a test drive.

My 2001 dodge grand caravan 3.8l cuts off when i shift from park to any gear and the transmission fluid i checked from the dipstick is black and metalic looking

so it idles fine as long as it is in park. when you shift it into gear it stalls?

Does it feel like if you had a manual transmission and you let out the clutch with your foot on the brake?

if you are in a place you can do this safely without hitting anything try starting it while the transmission is in neutral. After it starts put it into either drive or reverse with your foot off the brake. Does it start to move, then the rpms start to drop fast and then stall?

Again if you can do this in a safe place what happens if you do the above and as soon as it goes into gear you give it a little gas? Will it move and stay running until you come to a stop? If yes the torque converter is locked.

Unfortunately from the description of the fluid and this symptom your likely looking at replacing the transmission.

Can will drive in reverse, when put into drive it dies.

if you put it into drive with your foot of the brake will it keep running?

Does it feel like you forgot to push in the clutch if it where a manaul transmission?

Does it try to lunge forward right before it dies?

If the answer is yes to any of these than I am betting that the TCC solenoid is stuck. This is keeping the torque converter in the transmission locked up as a solid link between the engine and transmission. This normal happens at highways speeds.

Transmission question. Now i know that it is damaging to an automatic transmission to put it in another gear while the car is moving, but I was wondering, in my 2009 CRV there is about a second delay when...

not likely that you did any damage doing this just once. It would be best to keep your foot on the brake pedal until the car is all the way in gear.

Your best bet is to keep your foot on the brake until it goes into gear. It does take a "second" for everything to work in the transmission, but if it is more, with it being a 2006, the factory warranty should still be good. I would have a Hyundai Dealer check the transmission, it may need a transmission service. I don't think you would hurt anything.

Not yet, but you could end up breaking hard parts like the transmission output shaft or axle. The way the transmission is programed (Transmission Control Module) is when the transmission is on park, the transmission line pressure is drop so when you put it to gear, there will not be a big shock to the transmission and drive line. If you give it gas before it's in gear, the transmission line pressure rises which will give the transmission a large shock when it goes in to gear and can cause a major internal part to break like the out put shaft. The transmissions were program to go in to gear with a delay and the transmission line will rise once it's in gear, this way the transmission will last longer and less probability to any parts breaking unless abused that way you have described on how you don't wait for it to go in to gear before you take your foot of the gas and give it gas right away. And yes they can see that thought the DTC history on how the car is driven voiding any warranty.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
