Hi there. It is possible that when your transmission fluid like came off, fluid escaped. This may have created internal damage to the transmission or damaged an electrical connection/sensor. It’s also possible that the vacuum line may not be properly attached. It would be a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete a car is hard to start inspection, so they can verify if any mechanical issues exist or if this is a minor electrical glitch that can be easily fixed.
