2002 Taurus Transmission Light

Post by Thomas_J » Mon Sep 24, 2018 12:13 pm

Car seems to run and drive fine. Some times when you start it the trans. light is on and sometimes it is not. When it doesn't come on the car can be driven a good ways and the light doesn't come back on. If the light is on when the car starts it stays on as long as you are driving. you never know which it will be.The vehicle has 103k miles. No real history available. Thanks

Is the transmission slipping or shifting hard and do you remember when the last time it has it's fluid and filter changed?

There doesn't seem to be any slipping or hard shifting. Don't really have any history on the car. As far as I know it may have the original fluid. Doesn't smell burnt. It isn't as clear as I think it might should be.
Thanks
