Question about 2001 Chevrolet Prizm
Car had acted grt.for 200 mi. then shifted into neutral @ 60 mph and was driven 15 mi. in low gear-chngd, fluid & filter w/no improvement-old fluid burned black
Why would you change fluid if the old fluid was BLACK
The trans is burnt,is that new to you
Has to be rebuilt or a reman installed
From now on you change the fluid in all your
vehicles every 3 years to avoid that
Trans Fluid remove HEAT
That is why you change it
It doesn't fix a thing & should make it slip worse

Solenoids usually set a code that can be checked with a code reader.
Make sure that the oil in your transmission is full and clean...solenoids can get gummed up by varnish if trans is not serviced properly.

You are going to need a Rebuild on this Tranny. Unless you know how to Rebuild a Tranny, I would have it done at a Tranny Shop. If you get the Clutches in the Wrong order During Rebuild it could Crack the Housing on the Tranny and cause a Bigger Problem. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

That does sound like a linkage adjustment problem.
If that does not work, I'd try a fluid change and filter. But your diagnostics with pulling on the gear shifter is a pretty good indication of a linkage problem.
