Check engine light on

(1999 Ford Escort)
The check engine light in my 1999 escort lx keeps coming on. A diagnostic test revealed that there was ' Transmission slipage ' or that the fluid may be low. The fluid is fine, and there is NO NOTICEABLE slipping. Every once in awhile, there is a slight hesitation, like when speeding back up after slowing down. It shifts through the gears just fine, only jerking slightly when the car is very hot. I am at a loss.... any advice?

Is that the only code? If that's what set the light on...really there is not much you can do other than pursue a transmission diagnosis. Did you write down the code - what is it? Internal transmission slipping (especially hot) on this F4E-III transmission is usually caused by mechanical issues, requiring extensive repairs.
