Which box?  If powershift, the usual issue is previous lack of servicing.  Oil & filter change every 37k or big problems, usually in the clutch pack although there can be other issues.  Even dealers skip it, as the oil is "arm and leg" dear.  Adding fluid (NOT ATF!) will likely not cure the issue.  No dipstick anyway.
