First off, I have to say I know nothing about autos, or at least I didn't until recently.....
I have a late model XF van and the auto started shifting erratically, slipping, hunting for gears etc.
The dip stick didn't seem to seat properly so I thought maybe it was low on fluid. In a quick fix attempt, I overfilled it which didn't help.
So, to cut a short story long.......I pulled off the pan and it's got a fair bit of red stuff which I'm assuming is band lining.
Also a busted clip and washer in the bottom of the pan.
Do I chuck it and get another from Pick-a-Part?
