    There are vacuum lines that must be correctly attached to the tranny....if there is a leak, you are welcoming shifting problems.

    Sounds like the transmission is going in to limp in mode, have diagnosed or at lest have transmission fault codes pulled and repost.

    My wifes car wouldnt shift out of low gear.It also was dying after it reached a certain
    temp and not starting again.My mechanic replaced the crank case sensor to fix the
    problem of the car dying.Replacing that part also made the transmission start shifting
    again.I was dumbfounded.
