[06 CV LX] Transmission going bad?

What's up, folks?

So my recently purchased 2006 CV LX has about 240,000, has been pretty well maintained, and drove absolutely beautifully up until about a week ago.

One day I was driving and started to feel the car not shift properly. About 5 miles later, the transmission was simply not wanting to shift (yet I drove it about 5 miles to work and left it there).

That night, the car started fine, but the car wouldn't go forwards, backwards, you know the drill.

I looked underneath and saw a rusty gash on the transmission line bleeding out all of my trans fluid. I bought the appropriate size rubber hose and clamps, cut out the bad part and repaired the issue.

I threw 5 quarts of trans fluid in there and the car ran perfectly for about a day. Although my fix worked and not even a drop is has leaked, the trans is starting to go bad again. Every day it has gotten worse and worse.

I am pretty sure by tomorrow it will have trouble shifting again.

So my question is- could the entire trans have gone bad in a matter of six days? Did driving it in a near-empty condition for under ten miles damage it permanently?

Any expert advice, folks?

Re: [06 CV LX] Transmission going bad?

Running a trans low on fluid makes them slip and that wears them out fast. Did you use Mercon V? Has it been serviced regularly? You could pull the pan and see what's in the pan.
