I had the same issue until my transmission malfunction light came on...I took it to several Transmission shops only to find that my transmission oil pan was leaking and had been for sometime. The filter, pan, and transmission gasket come as an assembly so all of that was replaced. When the shop drained by transmission I had 2 quarts out of 2 gallons. I was lucky the transmission did not burn up. Anyway...I had new fluid, and the pan, filter, gasket assembly replaced for $650 and once the computer reprogrammed itself my car is good as new.
