Good advice. Thanks.
before paying a mechanic to check an auto tranny issue, ALWAYS check the fluid level.
and check it when its warm. if its low cold it doesnt necessarily mean its low, atf fluid is to be checked warm. HOWEVER if it doesnt even register on the dipstick when cold its definately too low and needs to have some added.
being low on fluid will cause delayed shifts, a lack of shifts, and slippage.
also be warned having too much is also bad, its kind of an exact level you need to achieve.
