They should have flushed the lines and cooler when they put it in. Was this done?

AnswerChrysler products REQUIRE MOPAR ATF+ transmission fluid only. it is possible that the wrong fluid was put in. this is extremely common.

are we asuming its a Chrysler its not because of flushing or because of fluid.more than likely something internal of the trans is cominig apart friction disc,converter friction disc, maybe major mecanical failure of metal hardparts in side the transmission.dirt and stuff stuck inside the filter espcialy if its plugged is generally the sign of a trans.starting to ware extensivly in side

You don't. Most Honda transmission have a non-serviceable filter that is located inside the transmission. The transmission must be disassembled to get at the filter. It is designed to last the life of the transmission. By the time the filter is clogged, the transmission needs overhauling.

One of the reasons a transmission might not shift into overdrive could be a problem with the belt drive inside the transmission. Belt drives can be stretched over time. Another reason could be that the transmission fluid is low or very old or the filter is clogged.
