i have a 99 forester with an AT. The other day i went on a long drive about 300km before i stoped. as i came off the hyw and slowed down i noticed the "AT oil temp" light was flashing and as i stoped at the sign, and went to start again it seemed that the AT did not shift into 1st grear and wanted to start out of 2nd. as i let off the gas i felt a clunk through the driveline and the car droped into first grear and away i went. as i pulled off the road i truned the car off for about five minutes and started it again the "AT oil temp" light reset and the transmission seemed fine. i drove another 200km and again as soon as i slowed down to come off the hwy the light came back on and the transmission was having difficulty down shifting as i drove through town?. so now that i am back in my home town the problem seems to be more apparent. this morning was -13C and i warmed the car for 5 min in the driveway and as soon as i put the shifter in reverse the warning light cam on again? i know that the transmission could have been overheated in that short time and with the cold temp. I have checked the fluid in the AT and it smells fine and looks clear pink, also the levels are right. if any body as had this problem in the past and can give me some advise as to what is hapening that would be great thanks.
