What are the symptoms of automatic transmission failure?

I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan SE, While I am driving things are alright, but when slowing down to a stop the transmission downshift late. What causes thisand is there anything I should be concerned about. Recently, I put some more transmission fluid in . could I have overfilled it?This should help:Complete automatic transmission failure is obvious because the car will not move at all when shifted into forward or reverse. Usually the symptoms of impending automatic transmission failure are not quite as dramatic, and can be inspected by a mechanic to determine if the transmission needs replacing or if there is any chance the problem can be repaired.Delayed ShiftingOne common symptom of automatic transmission problems is delayed shifting when the vehicle is cold, particularly for reverse or first gear. Loss of One GearSometimes one gear will go out entirely while the others still function. If fourth or reverse gear fails, for instance, the vehicle at least can be driven to a shop. Unusual Shifting SpeedsShifting may take place at unusual speeds, earlier or later than it should. The speed where shifting takes place also may keep changing. Noise and JerkingAny noise while shifting is a symptom of automatic transmission failure, and so is rough, jerky shifting. Odd MovementIf the vehicle tries to move while in park or neutral, it most likely has automatic transmission failure. Shift Lever IssuesIf the shift lever is difficult to move, this indicates transmission problems as well.

My 2001 grand am gt is shifting hard someone please help?

Most often hard shifting can be fixed partially by a transmission flush and change of automatic transmission filter. Also, i have had luck with using a large magnet on the bottom of the transmission pan before the flush because parts of the clutches that are loose will not be filtered by a clogged filter. Also, on my grand am, the transmission fluid was dangerously low when i went to change it when first buying the car- this could also be a possible problem.
