hot transmission problem

2000 Saturn LW wagon, automatic trans

When the car is cold and just driving around town everything shifts fine. However, occassionally if I drive the car for about an hour (highway) the service engine light comes on and the trans slips a little when I get off the highway and start driving in town again.

Brake fluid is almost at max (manual says this is also the hydraulic clutch fluid).

Is it low trans fluid?

Manual says I don't need to check the trans fluid. I found the cap for it, but no dipstick. I had my oil changed two days ago and I asked if they would check and he said they did but I can't be absolutely sure.

You need to get the troublecodes read for the check engine light and report back here.

mixed up

If you have an automatic trannie you would not have a hyd clutch. Your brake fluid has also nothing to do with the trannie.
