No it will not, I think you have had a bad tranny form the get go. Hard driving, stop and go, not changing your fluid can cause a tranny to break.

Lack of maintenance would be my guess. How many miles did you put on it without changing the fluid? You should be changing the fluid and filter every 30,000 miles.
