    Newbie Help tranny issue 02

    Hi this is my first post, I just bought a 2002 WRX wagon that is automatic it has
    90 000km on it and 30 000km on the engine and I decided to change the tranny fluid and when I did it started slipping, at first a low rpm and then it got a little better and only a high rpm

    any suggestions would help!

    Make sure your not low on atf fluid and to check it make sure the car is idling and is warm. this way you can get a accurate reading.

    I have no Idea my mechanic changed it thats why I asked the question, Because then I can ask him, and say I think you used the wrong stuff!

    BTW I figured it out the idiot who changed it did the diff not the tranny good thing I only drove a mile or so
