Hello again, my car runs great now, except the transmission control light comes on. it only does it when i try to start the car right away after i have driven for long distance. Sometimes the light does not even come on and everything works like normal.
i looked at the bottom of the car and the engine was oily, but oil levels are good, i am suspecting the transmission cooler lines possibly leaking. i degreased everything. i will check the lines again.
my question, what fluid should i fill transmission with?. Everything drives good with an occasional slightly rough (noticeable, but not omg what was that) downshift when coming to a stop, should i just take to a specialist? i have been driving real easy on it for fear of ruining it completely.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thnx for the quick reply Jbg.
i will order parts right away and do the change, i just wasn't sure because some where in the manual says no to mess with it or something like that.
But i will give it try.
also thanks for posting that link with info on how to jack up the car. me and my dad were able to lift the car up before when changing the fuel filter but i was real sketchy about it being safe.
