My cars transmission wont go past 1st gear (automatic). I dropped the trans pan and realized the trans filter is there. What caused this?

My car has an automatic transmission.
I’m guessing what you mean is you found the filter lying in the bottom of the transmission pan. There is a bolt that is supposed to hold the filter in place. If the filter came loose, it’s because that bolt was missing. This should only happen if someone was in there before and forgot to reinstall the bolt.
