  1. thanks for your help
  2. Thank you for answering. I am not sure when it was last serviced as I have only just bought the car. I cleared the code and then I tried sitting in the car with it running in drive for 5 minutes before starting off. The code did not appear for a good 15 minutes and this was only after giving it a 'good boot'. After switching the engine off and on again the transmission fault disappeared and the car regained it's full power again. It certainly improved a great deal as it used to only take a few hundred yards before happening. It makes me think whether it may be short of fluid, but I am not sure how to top them up or how to check.
