Transmission Problem.

(1990 Chevrolet Caprice)
in Joliet, IL on September 19, 2011
Two weeks ago i replaced my transmission but i went (USED on my 90- caprice classic. Before i changed it, it was changing gears on first and second but once the car went to 25 to 30 miles per hrs. it idled up and felt as if the transmission was slipping. i changed it for it to happen again the same way the first time. Is there a reason that this might be happenning like a sensor or something, or could it be i just got bad luck with the USED transmission i bought and i should replace it again? thank you, Samuel

used transmission are bad news anyway. you most likely have a bad one.

i would get a price on having your original one overhauled by a trans shop. you will save the labor by doing it yourself and will get a trans that actually works.
