Customer Question

I just picked up a 2003 Lincoln ls with the V8. The idle fluctuates up and down and when I give it gas it jerks or hesitates so I'm wondering if it's the fuel filter or tranny.

nothing pop's up. I changed the fuel filter and the fluctuating stopped but still hesitates. I'm pretty sure the transmission fluid is low. It's a sealed transmission. I'm not sure how to go about putting fluid in it without over filling it. Any suggestions?
