Default shift solenoid

i have a 2000 chrysler cirrus love the car. i was having a problem with my shifting at first i thought it was cause i was low on fluid somy husbandput some in and it ran fine then it started not going into gear and my engine light came on so i took it up to auto zone and they ran a dioagnostic test for me. i found out it was the sift solenoid.... ok somy husbandchanged it and it ran fine went into gear perfectly. but now my problem is it leaks. i called a chrylser mechanic and he said that i don't need to tork it or put on sealent... ok i did that and it still leaked, so i put on sealent and it still leaks. it is leaking in a steady stream. does any one have any ideas please help. i really would have to get a new car cause i can't get it fixed i would just take it to a mechanic and get it fixed but i dont really have the money to do that. we'll try any ideas. except for stop leak alredy tried. thanks so much.

ive seen the metal plate leakers,like tech said don't reuse the plate.also check and see how many metal stub type legs are on the old one verses the new one you may have to remove one of the three to make it work.moe

big metal plate to which u placed the sol pack on top of. The new CHrysler OE ones give instructions to remove the plate because if the different routing it takes and the plate gets in the way.

Default car jumps into drive after three seconds

WOO HOO i got my car to stop leaking but turns out that the roll pins were just not seated enough into the solenoid go figure. ne hoo now i'm havin a diff problem. when iput my car into drive it takes three seconds to respond. i checked the fluid level and it is right. also if it put it into any other gear it goes into it right away. when i drive it it shifts fine and when i come to a stop it goes right away. so now i have no idea what could be wrong. just that it takes three seconds to go into drive or third or low. i did it like 10 times in a row and each time it took three seconds. please help
