Auto gearbox problems

Our 1999 Ford Cougar (automatic) will only go for 300metres and then loses all gears.Then I wait 5 minutes and then all gears come back for another 300 metres.Any advice would be great.Thank you

Re: Auto gearbox problems

Check the transmission fluid, if it hasn't turned black yet, change the fluid as soon as possible along with the filter. Avoid driving it, if you haven't burnt it out, yet, you will in a hurry.

Re: Auto gearbox problems

Apparently we can't change the filter because it hasn't got a sump.
