Hard to say at this point. Check the condition and level of the fluid first, there should be a dipstick for the transmission in the engine bay if I'm not mistaken. If there is, start the car and let it warm up to operating temperature, then with the engine running and in park, pull the dipstick, wipe clean and reinsert for a couple seconds and remove, the level should be between the cross hatches.
