Firstly, and a big question. When I went to add tranny fluid level today to
my 300TE, someone had inadvertantly put a open bottle of 20/50 Motor Oil in
my Tranny Supply bag. I started adding it to the tranny. Got very little
out, maybe a couple of tablespoons or so and noticed what I was doing. I
stopped and then added a quart of tranny fluid as it was low. Will that
little bit of motor oil in the tranny cause problems? What should I do? I
can't believe I was that stupid. I hate to have to replace the filter again
as I just did but don't want to trash the transmission.
It seems as though the car has been delaying before going into 1st gear
which I know is normal. But at times it doesn't kick down for several
minutes and the revs seem to keep high. Also, yesterday I started the car
and it wouldn't go into gear until I restarted it and then seemed to work
fine. But it was a quart or so low in tranny fluid. I have a slow leak from
the pan seal Is this the relay computer causing problems or can it be the
need for tranny fluid? The car has 145,000 original miles on the tranny but
it has seemed to be fine so far.
