I have been having a problem With my EF lately, mainly when i first start it up in the morning. When put into Drive it sometimes takes a few seconds and a few revs before it will go into D. On Sunday I actually had to pull over because it wasnt changing into second gear, it was just reving. But i have only noticed this when it is cold. It is fine after driving for a while??
What could be wrong
Oh and it has 170kms

A vote for trans fluid, removing the dipstick was a s**t idea.

Low trans fluid!! After servicing my auto on the weekend I had a similar prob. Your oil level is a touch too low. Bout 250-400mls should fix it up.

also badley burnt fluid is a big cause suggets you do a full service on it as this can be a major killer of the falcon auto to slow down the buring of the oil fit a decent size auto cooler and ya transmission will luv ya for it did this on my mont and hasnt been burnin it as much

i got the same problem, with the no going into second and just reving but when it warms up. it drives like a dream and doesn't miss abit. So i think its not the bands coz it would do it when its hot then. Will put more oil in and try that when i get my motor back.

remember to get your auto flushed at least once every 60,000km

but better to do it every year!!!
