Transmission Fluid Level Question
2000 SEL 24 valve. After initial start up I put it in gear without applying any throttle there is a hesitation before car starts to move. If I apply throttle I get movement. I checked the fluid level cold and on level ground and the fluid was aprox. 3-5 inches above the hash marks. I checked it again hot and on level ground the fluid is between the hash marks. Why the initial hesitation and the difference in fluid levels? Are the two related?
