    How are you checking your oil level?

    The same way as you check your engine oil?

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    BINGO!! Should be in neutral, engine running, transmission warm & immediately after a run and/or after putting in & out of drive a few times.
    My guess is it's low on ATF but is showing OK if that's the way you're checking it.
    It doesn't sound like bands a they usually just slip like a worn clutch.
    I'll bet at least a litre of ATF will cure it unless the pump is worn but they usually don't die all that quick.
