TRANSMISSION AND BLACK SMOKE

Volkswagen Other

This is a 1991 vw jetta 1.8L automatic 3 speed with just over 290 000 kilometers on it, all levers, cables outside the transmission are fine, they were all checked, transmission was flushed a few weeks ago, new oil and filter and a conditioner was added, it was filthy, dirt and gasket pieces in the oil, it still refuses to upshift into third gear, why?

and then there's black exhaust smoke on startup, i'll be grateful for any insight on all this, I cant afford to change the transmission or even to have it opened up.
