Unhappy What happened and what are my options

So I just got my chipped ecu installed and loving the benefits when 160 miles later.tyranny gone. The d3 or d4 won't move just revs in 2 can feel it trying but still basically just revs when I put in in 2 it sits at 1k rpm. In 1 it almost stalls but moves doesn't feel secure but it does move 3rd is good so is forth. About a week ago I noticed really hard 12 shifts. I but I figured it was my tires like they were jumping or something. I bought ghetto tires. Down shifting gives the same results just revs. Any ways is this fixable and if so how much. This car is at this point my dd. How long can it last like this if I am easy on it. I how hard is a 6mt swap and what all needs to be done my car can only be down a max of 2 days.

Have you checked your trans fluid level yet? remember car has to be at operating temp. fans must come on twice and car must be running to check fluid level. best to take from park put in reverse then to drive back to reverse and the park before checking . if car has been sitting of course.

Best to check the manual because I believe it states that car must be turned OFF before checking tranny fluid level (but at operating temp).

Manual states that the car must be at operating temperature and on a level surface. You have up to 1 minute to check the fluid after shutting off the car.

Default Checked

I checked the trans fluid level about 1 mm above full checked right after i turned off the car after 20 miles. What else could cause this checked connectors at ecu and by the master clyinder both are on tight.

The manual doesn't say anything about having up to 1 minute after shutting the car off

But yes the car should be off and the fluid should be at operating temperature.
