Transmission weirdness.

89 560 sl 201,000 miles.
Last PM driving home, just finished a thought about how nice this car drove, high mileage and all, when after coming to a stop sign, The car seemed to slip our of gear. I mean, I could go, but to get any speed at all, I had to rev it up, like it was slipping or something. tried manually shifting but no progress-was able to limp to my destination.

Car sat for an hour, I started it up and it drove just fine-like nothing happened. Same thing this morning, drove fine, made it to the auto place-fluid was low-added fluid and drove off.

Did I get lucky and the low fluid caused it to act up or is it just a big problem waiting for the right moment? My search turned up something about a b2 piston. Is this related?

Just how low was it?

They certainly won't work when they get too low. Are there any obvious leaks? Have you ever have the fluid and filter changed? If not, now would be a good time!
