      Did it shift into overdrive okay before you changed the fluid and filter? What did the old fluid look like was it burnt? Perhaps something got disturbed when the transmission pan was off?
      Hope this helps

      Make sure that your axles are completely in at the transmission. Also make sure that your shift cable adjustment is correct. Hopefully you got a known good transmission as these are problematic transmissions.

    What could cause a pulsating vibration from driverside front area?
    The faster you go the louder it gets and when car i in neutral the sound is still there which leads me to believe it is the drivetrain.

      You could have a tire that is going bad, driveshaft that is failing, or a warped brake rotor. Check the tire for any signs of uneven wear on the tread. If that looks fine, you might have a tire shop inspect it anyway just to be sure. Does the vibration change when you accelerate hard? If so, it might be a driveshaft. I had a driveshaft fail that had a little vibration at normal speeds, but when accelerating or going up a hill it would vibrate worse. If the vibration gets worse when you apply the brakes while moving, it might be a the brake rotor warped. You might be able to have it turned or just have to replace it.

    Clutch or Transmission?
    When I get on the interstate, I have to get up to speed with everyone else. If I try to speed up quickly and when changing gears my gas pedal will hit the floor and I can feel my RPM's go up but I don't gain any speed. It's like my engine is just spinning but it's ...

      The clutch is slipping . Either it is worn out or needs adjusted . Since that should be a hydraulic clutch system there is no adjusting to speak of . New clutch time .

      Check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps to change the transmission fluid and filter. You will also need to purchase the transmission fluid - check the owners manual and the specific fluid capacity for the refill.
      Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; or for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the filter and gasket kit for around $10.00 for your vehicle.

    Manual transmission not going in to gear smoothly when shifting. What could be the problem?

      Sounds like the clutch isn't disengaging all the way . Might be a weak or bad master cylinder or slave cylinder . Could also be air in the line that needs to be bleed off . But if it has air in it then you need to see why . Back to checking the master / slave cylinders and the line for leaks .

      Did you also bleed the clutch slave cylinder? If not, do it just like you would do your brakes at the wheel. Make sure you keep the master cylinder filled as you do this.

      It sounds like you have not bled all of the air out of the system.
