when I engage D (from say park) it takes 2-3 seconds to engage. It does the same from D to R.

Also, for example when I have it in first gear, and accelerate, it slips for a bit and then takes up...the oil is cherry red and there is enought oil in the box (according to the dipstick) does that sound like the bands are slipping and it simply needs a service or does it sound like something worse?

clogged filter=reduced fluid flow, which will mean sluggish take-up of gears

shouldnt happen in 40,000km, but anything is possible
