Default Tranny issues.

So a little background on the Transmission:
Original Transmission with 120K on it. Car is driven nicely and barely beat on.

So after i installed my shift kit i got my bill i noticed it made my shifts harder which its supposed to do. But it also made my tranny jerk more. When it shifts, i can deffinently feel it.

A coupe times to day after the car hasnt been running for more then 5 minutes, at a stop when it was my turn to go, the car would just kinda sit there for 3 seconds as Im putting down the throttle, then after my RPMs rev it will Jerk really hard/slip and then go.

It seems when im driving normal, the shifts are taking a lot longer then normal to get into the next gear, but when i floor it, they shift fine.

When i dropped my tranny pan when doing the shift kit, there was no metal shavings in the
pan and the fluid was not burnt.

Any solutions or tips on what i should do? Is it too late to do anything, do i basically just wait to **** on me?

That sounds like low fluid level. Have you checked the fluid sense the install?

Well i put 8 quarts in when it requires 7. And i havent checked it for a month or so/Since the install.

You really think low fluid would cause slippage? I should havent low fluid, any other ideas what it could be?

Go check the fluid level. Thats the first thing we need to rule out before proceeding.

It depends on how much came out when you drained it. Typically 6 quarts come out with a filter change, 7 quarts with a shift kit. But more can come out. Also, over filling it could be a problem. Check the level. then drive a while and check the level to see if there'* foam on the stick.

i checked the level when my car wasnt running and it was at least 2 inches past the full mark. Then i when i turned my car on and drove home about 30 minutes and checked the fluid was not very thick on the stick and had bubbles in it. What does this mean?

I think your over full and foaming up. Stick a long tube in the dip stick and remove about a quart and see if that helps. Try to get it right to where it needs to be on the stick.

Lol your probably thinking, well maybe thats why your trannys messed up, putting your tranny fluid in your power steering.
