Scan the computer for code/s, if no CEL-have the tranmsission further checked by a transmission specialist-hard to say where its coming from internally

Well on the stick it just says hot and then cold on the other side. It doesn't say fill or low like other sticms do.

The fluid level has to be on the Hot side when engine and transmission is at normal operating temperature-

You need to get the level corect. Fill it to the cold mark and see if it moves. Check it with the engine running in park.
