The mechanic trans theory is humorous at best. I suspect you made it up anyway. The stuff described simply does not happen, even if it was his theory

The fluid level is OK per the OP, it has been suggested repeatedly that he check it. I would reccomend the method in the Bentley manual over some sort of silly panic stop trans fluid check.... unless you follow up with your italian tune-up
Of course you shouldn't care, and of course contrarian evidence posted by others must be made up. Sorry, I forgot, my bad.

OP, you should check your fluid. Jesus, you have a 318. So you should be using a 4hp22 tranny. It has a dipstick. Check the levels when its cold, and when the car is hot (after having driven the car for at least 15 minutes). It must be within the dipstick's indicators in both situations.

If know what you have to do.
