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

Your transmission's filter may be clogged, you may be low on transmission fluid, or the transmission may need repair or replacement.

If this doesn't help the transmission may actually be damaged and may need repair or replacement.

When you take off your transmission is stuck in low gear is the transmission bad?

Does it stay stuck in first gear? or does it change and when it changes does it seem to wanna slip... if it does shift and it shifts smoothly it might be the kick down lever that's going to the transmission... sometimes they can become rusty making the vehicle shift at much higher RPMs then normal, making you think that its the transmission. If its not that then it might be the bands, or servos... im not a transmission exspert, but I do know somethings about them... Also, it might be the filter... sounds weird, I know, but always check fluid levels and filter as well, a clogged filter or old fluid can make the transmission seem bad, when its actually just the fluid and filter... lots of things to consider... thanks, hope ive helped.
