    You could try and disconnect a trans cooler line. Using a friend undo the top line and run it into a bottle. Have someone start the engine and let a litre pump out. Shut off soon as the 1L has been pumped out. Pop the line back on and see how that goes.

    RJK is telling you to check the level instead of speculating on what you were told.
    P.s please add punctuation.
