Tranny is a sealed unit, no way to check it. If it isn't leaking, you're good. I do recommend changing the fluid at about 50,000 miles, several posts detailing a DIY.

Thank you for your response! I took my car in. & there is no way its my transmission. My car only has 28000 mi. the mechanic cked it out. The warning did'nt show of course!

I start my car & the warning picture pops up, it looks like a crank & shows Malfunction: shows something about????????: Transmission, Gear shift, by stepping on brake, some functuality might jump, i think? I Never have time to read it all because it clicks off quickly! And it does'nt show on the message control. But it shows all systems ok!

Any other suggestions appreciated??????
