The only way to do a proper trans diagnosis is to do it hands-on and with the proper tools.

Go to a transmission shop in or near T'rana and have them do the diag. It might be a simple adjustment, but you won't know until they have done the diag. Ask several friends which trans shop they trust.

On "flushing": unless trans service was done at the regualr recommended intervals since new, I do not recommend them as a service answer. You end up disturbing the buildup of particles that serve to maintan a seal with worn components, and you create more problems than you fix. It's too big a risk. Either do the service regularly, or don't do it.

Consider also what you are experiencing may be an engine problem, not a transmission problem. Get a competent diagnosis.

Are you talking about the dipstick ?
If you drain and refill you will probably be surprised how dark and stinky it is.
My $.02
Buy a case of Toyota ATF, drain and refill 3 times after driving a bit between each fill.
Worth a try before you pay for diagnostics. ATF is cheap in the grand scheme of things.
You could start by pulling the pan and check/clean the filter.
Also here is a Honda TSB for Civic's with your symptoms. Linear solendoid is an easy fix replacement on a Civic.
Could be clutch pack also ?

SYMPTOM:
The transmission shifts harshly, or it may stay in first gear. The MIL may be on with DTC P0730 or P0715 stored.
PROBABLE CAUSE:
Contamination of the linear solenoid and its associated passages inside the transmission.

Since 133000 km is 82,642 miles, if you have never serviced your transmission, DON'T go running new fluid through it now in an effort to avoid a diagnosis and possible repair. You CAN cause more problems than you have now. If a shop makes a repair and changes the fluid, you have a warranty to cover whatever happens after that repair.

If you cause more problems, you have no recourse except to have an expensive repair done, out of pocket.

You still need a diagnosis, from a competant shop that does guaranteed work.
