Forget the dipstick method for determining the fluid level - it is
When you take off up a hill when it is cold, does the box have trouble
staying in first? I mean under 10mph.
If so add fluid.
A widely experienced friend (does non Rovers, uggh) reckons too full leads
to vicious reverse gear selection.
Otherwise check the bands. Too tight maybe.
