    You must have had a problem with a mechanic it seems. Not all repair shops/mechanics are dishonest!
    Are you a mechanic???

    Don't try to drive it while low on fluid, more damage WILL occur!!! Transmission will need to be checked by a mechanic to determine exactly what the problem is!
    ADD FLUID as needed BEFORE DRIVING it to the repair shop only! May need a tow truck.
