I have an Automatic Transmission light and noise from the transmission

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the transmission fluid?

Yes it is fine. i just put in a new transmission cooler and thermostat so i think there may be air in the pump.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mazda?

2006 miata

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Miata yourself? What have you tried so far?

I've check the fluid level several times. I shifted the trans through all the gears. it makes noises and the AT light comes on

I havent driven it. I bypassed the oil cooler. Here are the symptoms now - Engine and AT light on with no codes. When I go into drive it is in 4th gear instead of first. The neutral light does not go on. It will not go into manual mode. There is no more noise.

are you going to the transmission computer testing not the engine test with scan tool??
