Well, after many days reading here and all the net, I know more or less what I have to do, the box is leaking,i think that's the main problem, low level, it has mobil atf 320, so wrong too, with around 5000 km, the only suitable oil is Mobil lt71141, it is recorded on my memory now forever, the box was working fine until in a parking, setting the return speed, the car just jump, first time I stopped the engine,start again and all seemed right, just continue, the second time I started to worry about, the same but the section about transmission in the front panel started warning, as well the lcd on the console, i don't know the exact terms for them, my english sucks, after that the car is in the parking waiting for my decision, all right until the leakings point, is it worthy repair the box? or just knowing about it check level really often,and refill, if I have to repair...I can do it, I am heavy equipment driver and used to deal these issues with, the problem is, place,time...tools maybe..Norway is crazy about prices, so I don't even think about a repairing garage even less official service, lexia 3 coming, and not easy to find the oil, I am checking ebay http://www.ebay.com/bhp/esso-lt-71141 but only brands with label "equivalent" some advise of first hand would be appreciated, thanks

Look at BEN82's posts. He sourced LT71141 here in England and had it delivered to Sweden at a fairly reasonable cost.

Yep, expensive stuff.
If you are likely to be doing several changes, which is what it will need if it has never been done previously or has been contaminated then it may be more cost effective to buy in bulk.
Here's a possibility if they will send it to you at a reasonable cost. Also you may need to factor in import duties and taxes.

May be worth contacting this supplier for a quote too.

Weigh that against the price you will pay in Norway.
