What do you mean by "loss of prime" (never heard that term before). I did a transmission fluid drain & fill about a year ago, and I *think* I topped it up correctly - I added fluid until it started coming out the fill hole, with the engine running, after running it through the gears. There's no sign of a leak. Why would it do this strange thing only once, only one mile from where she starts it from, and then never again on the rest of the trip?
