    You say "automatic transmission fluid changed on time", does that mean recently ? If not when was it changed ? And when it was changed, what was the procedure used to change it ?

    Also are you sure there is enough ATF in the box ? What is your procedure for checking the ATF level ?

    The reason I keep mentioning ATF fluid is that delayed engagement and hot gearbox indicate fluid issues. You need the good fluid and fluid at the right level to build the pressure to operate clutches.

    It would be worth flushing out the ATF fluid 3 or 4 times with new ATF taking the car for a 10 minute drive between each change to allow the fluid to fully circulate. You need to do the change 3 or 4 times as not all the fluid comes out when you drain the gearbox.

    If the above full flush does not fix your problem then your gearbox seals have failed already and the gearbox will need to be overhauled or replaced with a good. So I highly advice you do a flush as per the above procedure first to see if this fixes the issue.

    There's a better way than that to do fill up. I'll explain in the morning.
