Default Tranny Problems

Hey guys i am in some trouble, well atleast i think i am. I changed the tranny filters on my GF fathers dodge ram Slt, that was about 3 to 4 months ago maybe more. Toda he came up to me and sad he is going to need a new tranny because when you drive it it slips. I chcked the fluid and it was at full level and looks brand new still. Any ideas?

Did you check it after the truck was at normal operating temprature?
How old is the SLT?
Maybe it just so happens the bands need adjusting about the same time you changed the fluid.

The filter could have worked loose and fell to the bottom of the pan causing a loss of prime and the slipping.

no i just hooked up a scan tool to it and it reads p0700 and p0876. could that p0876 just mean the fluid is low? its hard to drive it to warm it up and check so????
