    If it had just been replaced, then fluid must be at level.
    Problems on shifting with automatic transmission are often due to a faulty TPS or a defective control module.
    The TPS is the throttle position sensor, that tells to the computer controlling the automatic trans how you use the throttle.
    When this is faulty you get shifting problems.
    The module controlling the trans it is a computer , a faulty module can also cause shifting problems.

    1. Check the transmission fluid level, if it's low, you
      have a leak & Look for fluids that have leaked on the ground below
      the transmission. Check the transmission case as well. Fluid can leak
      from seals, gaskets, fluid cooler and lines. Pinpoint the exact source
      of the leak to make proper repairs.

    2. Place a few drops of transmission fluid on a white
      paper towel. Red or light brown fluid that spreads easily over the
      towel is in good condition. Dark brown or black fluid that is gooey or
      thick fluid needs replacing to allow proper pressure and lubrication
      within the transmission.

    3. Replace the fluid filter to ensure it's in good
      working order. Check the old filter for metal shavings, which are a
      sign of wear and require a fluid flush.

    4. Look at your check engine light to verify it has not
      come on. If the check engine is on, take the car to a mechanic who can
      pull the code and pinpoint the problem. Electronic transmissions can
      detect even small faults in operation, and you may want to drive the
      car to verify that the problem was not a one-time or erroneous error.

    5. Seek the assistance of a professional if the car is no
      longer going into gear, slipping out of gear while driving or a
      substantial amount of fluid is leaking. Fixing a transmission problem
      on your car early can save you money and help keep you on the road for
      a long time to come.
