Sorry it was a novice at work, would emptying the tranny fluid cause the problems and would it be harmful to drive about 10miles in it?

Refill the trans. Yes, it will damage and will cause the clutches inside to slip. Make sure to use the correct type of ATF. Do not drive it until it is refilled.

You're not bothering me. Usually they refill through the trans dip stick tube. I'm sorry, but I don't have a picture of this model.
