It wasn't driven for about 3 weeks the raidiator side tank blew so I got that fixed now it's doing this stupid problem and I had the trans serviced about 6months ago and it's got enough fluid maybe it's a sensor of some sort or something that's screwed?

oh. if radiator tank crap itself. maybe some radiator fluid got into the auto lines as they go into the side of the radiator to cool the gearbox fluid.
maybe a gearbox service will fix it.

nah havnt heard of but im jsut tryin to help. i just figure coz te auto fluid runs thru the radiator tanks to cool off a bit.
somtimes the tanks inside crap emselves and you get box fluid in ur radiator. and somtimes radiator fluid in box. even with the tanks themselves in tact on the outside.

May be the Gear Position switch on the left side of the auto tranny.
