You have to check the transmission oil level with the motor running. the stick is somewhere up there against the firewall. Be sure the level is between the two hash marks. if it is low, inspect for leakage on the transmission coolant lines to the radiator, and coming out of the transmission. You can also look at the condition of the fluid to see if it's brown and if it's been overfilled. Also how are your brakes, perhaps the hydraulics are causing some binding to occur.
