Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i recently had to add fluid to my transmission and right after i did it would no longer go in
reverse... it was working just fine before i added the fluid... it was slipping in drive.. which it
is no longer doing... and it is acting like it is competing with itself when i put it in reverse...
and it wont free rev in park either... it stalls out at around 2500 rpms when it is in park and
reverse... and will drive forward in every other slot from N to 1st
