Hi there. Typically a transmission fluid flush and filter change would resolve these type of symptoms. However, it is possible that an inner seal is damaged, that may have been pushed out during the fluid flush. It’s probably a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to shift inspection to determine the root source of your problems and recommend the right repairs.
