Default Transmission Bulkhead Connector

when I unplugged the connector I found transmission fluid inside the connector and I assume that is not a good thing. I used this pic from another member to show the part I am referring to, he is holding the wire harness that connects to the white plug coming out of the top of the transmission right next to where the TRS goes.

AM I right that it should NOT have trans fluid inside of the connector and if I am correct could this be the cause of my slipping transmission?

no it should not have trans fluid in the connector. Not sure if it wuld cause slippage, ( i dont know what sensor that is) but its safe to assume that the sensor is bad. replacing it might solve the issue.

From what I understand from the reading I have been doing the last hour or so it controls the shift solenoids.

Also it is loose where it goes into the top of the transmission. Im not sure how it attaches to the transmission but it seems like it should not be loose what so ever.

I had a transmission problem and cleaned/lubed the connector recently. Shouldn't be loose. Like other connectors, it has a rubber seal. It must be damaged or have been removed. It seals the pin/socket contacts from debris. Clean the connector with electrical contact cleaner (spray can) and restore the seal. Yes, it is for shift solenoids.

Very common to have atf inside that white connector. I did on all 5 of my gen3 tec ax4ns without issues. Is it a good or bad thing? Dunno. I did as paker suggested above.
