Did you flush the cooling system? You'll want to do that to get all the transmission fluid out. You should also change your transmission fluid and filter to be sure it's not contaminated with antifreeze. HTH. -Jim


Plumb in a good transmission cooler, route around the radiator cooler, do not use it, refill trans to the full mark, run it through the gears and recheck the level, now see if that cured your gear selection problem, hopefully it did, if not you may have a solenoid problem in the tranny, then flush your cooling system, it may take a machine to get all of the tranny fluid out of the cooling system. There are more and more tranny rebuilders that won't cover their warranty if you don't bypass the radiator cooler. HTH


No I did not flush the cooling system

Oil will attack rubber, so your hoses and cooling system seals are in jeopardy if you don't get it out.

All the adivise above are solid information, the flushing of the OLD fluids is critical if not it would be like taking a shower with dirty water. Let's hope your Engine block is not cracked, this can also cause a similar problem. Best of Luck !
