Hi Sam, how many miles has yours done? the auto box has to have the fluid replaced by 60,000 miles, most of us have it done around 40,000 miles and there is only one fluid you can use in the Jatco box fitted to our cars. If the oil gets to old some people have reported the sorts of problems you are having.

Wrong, I would get the fluid done ASAP, make sure that whoever does it uses the correct fluid, can't remember what it is called, the forum search engine should bring it up if you put in @auto box fluid' even if yours was done at 60,000 it is due again. Does your car have a full service history as the fluid change is part of the 60,000 mile service.

Fluid should be Texaco N402.
