transmission problems

Hi I have a 1995 nissan sentra and I changed both cv axles and refilled transmission fluid two days ago and drove the car down the road and it seemed to run fine then today while driving it I noticed at a stop sign when I gave it gas it revved a little and finally went, so I made it the rest of the way home (1 mile)
and when i put it into drive it would take a second to move? it did the same in reverse. so I checked the fluid and it was slightly overfull which may have been my doing but anyways does anyone know what this might be is my tranny shot? thanks

Over filled is as bad as under filled, if not worse.
Get the books, get the fluid to the correct level, try again.
Warm engine/transmission, NOT hot, not cold. Don't check it after a 300mph run down the highway balls-a-blazin...then again, don't check it after idling for 5 minutes. Drive it around for awhile, bring it home, let it sit and idle for a few minutes, then check it.
Level surface.
Engine running, run it thru the gears, put the transmission in neutral, check it again.

99% of the questions that are "STRANGE" have a dirt simple answer...usually answered by a dirt simple search.

NISSAN GOOGLE

Is it just me, or does the majority overlook the obvious?

Somebody ate a whole bag of dumbass for breakfast.

Why do people continue to run a vehicle when a warning light comes on or starts flashing? Isn't that a clue that something is wrong and you probably should NOT drive it?
Is this whole car driving thing really freekin' brain surgery?

Here's something new for the crowd/clowns...
"A little bit of Google goes a long way!"

Ever notice the one post wonders for info on turbo'ing a GA16 are never heard from again after they figure out the cost???

And if you can read this, you don't need glasses! :)

And yes, I am diggin' it...

it was about an 1/8 to 1/6 of an inch overfull not a lot but it only does that from a stop
sorry about the late reply but would that much of an overfill make that difference?

Probably not.
Bigger thing is to look for when trying to figure out if you're overfilled is tranny fluid that's foamy, has air bubbles in it, milky-ish appearance.
Past that, I think I'd pull the pan again and check my work. Maybe put a socket on the valve body bolts, double check them, snug them up if needed (don't crank on them 'cause that'll do more damage than good). Maybe the filter is loose, maybe you kicked up a bunch of sludge, maybe this, maybe that.
How bad did it slip before?

Did you check the ATF level after the tranny was fully warmed up and while the engine was idling? When you replaced the ATF, did you just opened the drain plug or did you drop the pan? If you dropped the pan, you may have disturbed something inside.

I pulled the drain plug and I drove it about 15-17 miles come back put it in neutral (while running) and checked it that is usually how i check them.

My mom drove it this morning and said it didnt do it? idk maybe it just needed to get in the valve body or something? I also drained the transmission fluid out of the radiator.

How did you drain the ATF from the radiator cooler? If you try to drain it by using some sort of flushing procedure, be very careful. Incorrect flushing could cause debris that's in the cooler to get dislodged and then get into the tranny and possibly cause major problems.

It's recommended by many A/T shops that if you're just going to replace the ATF in the tranny, don't drain the oil cooler.

the little hose on the bottom going from the transmission to the cooler i pulled it off and fluid came out. i didnt flush it so more than likely it didnt all come out.

the slip is getting better now it does it only when going from drive to reverse it will rev a little then slip into gear
