    I got a code reader last week and the code fault for the tranny says 4F81
    I checked on youtube and it appears it could be a plastic cracked part inside the tranny
    so I am still not close to finding the problems yet
    Ill post to see what other sin the forum also say

    Thanks for your help always
    You have a been a great resource for me
    I really appreciate your help and advice

    Hi I thought I would let you know what is happening
    Yesterday I was able to start looking at finding the oil/fluid leak
    it appears that it is leaking from under the alternator somewhere
    This started me thinking?
    Last week my friend helped me check the fluid in the transmission as i have a really bad left arm after an operation
    but after feeling better i jacked up the car again to test the fluid myself
    I am not sure what he checked but he didnt check the transmission level
    (Iam angry I didnt try my self now)
    I tried to undo the filler plug and its jammed in
    I tried to tapp it gently with a chiesel to free it but still no luck
    Then I hurt my arm and had to stop
    I think I will have to take off the trans cross member and lower it down so I can get better access to the filler plug.
    I will also have to take off my alternator and try and find out if the fluid is actually power steering fluid or transmission fluid?
