I was driving my car today around 55 mph and slowed down to 45 mph, I tried to speed up but my car would not accelerate. I have no idea what is wrong, I pulled over and got some help.

I put some transmission fluid in, drove it about ten minutes later and it would not accelerate past 30 mph.

I drove it back to where I had stopped with a line of people behind me because I could only go 25 mph.

A man checked my tran. Fluid level and it was pretty much gone. We added more, and test drove it after about ten minutes and it accelerated fine but the shifting from first to second and second to third was a very hard kick. As of right now my car is sitting in the parking lot where I stopped, I got a ride home.
