Just bought the car second hand yesterday and noticed that when you drive up hills, the car seems to really struggle. Also the engine temperature is in the middle of the gauge, so getting hot. Im not doing anything out of the ordinary - just putting my foot down on the accelerator. (Car is Diesel, automatic)

Also noticed when I moved the car after having parked overnight that there is an oily substance on the floor. Could it be transmission fluid?
