Mostly when its hot or warm. I had only changed the trans fliud on my car when now I drive it does not respond how it used too. It seems as thou the car does this mostly when fully warm. If I turn off the car to go to the store and come back out everything seems fine, then again after few minutes same thing like a stall feeeling motion. But if I engage the nuetral gear engine revs with no problem which leads me to believe it has to do with tranny and not the engine. Besides all I did was change the transmission oil. Could someone help me out?

Miles on the vehicle? Did you change the fluid/filter on a maint schedule? Heres the skinny on trans maint. If you abide by the manufactures suggestion of flushing the trans on the schedule they suggest, then by all means continue doing so. However, if you never have done a trans flush and you are well passed the mileage suggested, DO NOT DO IT. DO NOT disturb that trans at all. Not even a filter change. After a period of time, the trans will become dependent so to speak on the debris in the fluid. You remove that fluid and all hell will break loose.

How did you change the fluid?
What type of fluid did you use?
Do you have the correct fluid level?
Any service lights (check engine) lights on?

Might need to talk to a transmission specialist. Did you put in the correct type and amount of fluid? The wrong fluid will cause problems, and improper fluid level will also cause problems, exspecialy to much fluid. Something I learned recently is alot of cars now use computers to run the transmission, were you working around any wires connected to the transmission? Might check the plug connections to be sure the are on correctly. A specialist will be able to advise you what further action needs to be done.
