May just be those statements are not true
& you didn't do your home work

Not much to do on a 15 year old vehicle,pretty

You probably need a transmission pro to diagnose it properly, but it doesn't sound good. Was the original fluid you drained dirty brown? And did you see significant amounts of metal shavings in the transmission pan? The severe discoloration of the fluid is due to the clutch pack material wearing off and dispersed throughout the fluid. If the fluid smelled burnt, it is almost certain the transaxle is toast.

One thing that is rarely posted is any repairs and or instructions on doing so. For instance the Solenoid pack is often suggested as a replacement, and you can buy them on e-bay, but no instruction on how to replace one. Amazing. I can fix anything! Just take it to the Tranny Shop..... Makes me think that the only answers put on here are by Tranny Shops.

Auto transmition wont go into 3rd and 4th gear


I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist

Not catching 2nd gear


Check the level and condition of your tranny fluid.
Check the level with the car running, in park.
The fluid should be a pink or bright red color.
