back the next day and I wss back to square one

another transmission or add more fluid?

Did any of the new fluid you added leak out? The level check plug is under the car, if there is fluid there and it wont move then you have bigger problems. Keep in mind that the PCM in these cars are sensitive to the tranny gearing. A GT needs a GT tranny where as all other v-6's are interchangeable for that GM body type (Grand Am, Alero, Malibu, etc). If the wrong tranny is used the computer needs to be flashed.
