Hi..there..sorry for the delay..

Its means the transmissions ecm or the tcm if you want to call it..has detected an fault within the transmission itself..checking fluid level on these depending what box you have is quite difficult as the plug/level plug is on the transmission pan..plus its quite specific as per temperature to check the level around 40degrees not under or over..if you have no note of the fluid,transmission filter hasnt ever being done then that could be good place to start ideally - but what you really want done here is to get a scan tool hooked to the car and see what codes you have stored..then progress from there...How long you can use the car? well i cant answer that as we dont know the situation fault wise as you had nothing done yet scanned either..but based on that it wouldnt be advised to just leave it..best getting it seen to sooner or later rather than risk the transmission becoming even more problamatic and may lead to full replacement..hope this helps
