Make sure the fluid level is rite and red color--smell is from overheating--inspect cooling lines for flow to radiator--if ok then fluid change may help--soleniods and throttle cable used for shiftin cud have issues--its an old trans and many things possible--scan car and bring it to and honest mech not a dealer

since your car is matic, its good that you noted the color of the a/t oil. it means that the oil is still circulating. the problem may be with the solenoid switches for the gears, it could be that these switches are stuck up that the a/t oil pressure doesn't kick it in or they're burned out. try replacing the switches.

Your speed sensor might be hanging up.when you changed the trans oil and filter did your old oil smell burnt, and make sure you put the right fluid init.If your oil is burnt looks like you have a big job ahead of you.

2001 Dodge grand caravan sport. Transmission slipping/ jerking. Seems to run only in second gear... still slips and jerks. Smells of burnt trans fluid and the level is low on the dipstick.


I need a little mor info. But the reason for the being stuck in 2nd gear is because when something goes wrong with the tranny. it goes into "LIMP" mode wich keeps the trans. from shifting out of 2nd when you are going forward. It does sound like your trans. is gone out though.

My car has NO transmission fluid.


if it's still moving it should be O K, as long as you top off fluid ASAP.cause of low level should be investigated & remedied.fill transmission through dipstick tube to 'add' mark,run it a bit & add fluid to full mark when hot. do not overfill.trans. fluid & filter should be changed at 100K miles or less.

Slipping bad in every gear and wont move. it started by just a little slip then it completely went. trans fluid is still red and doesnt smell burnt.


Causes could be:
  • Low on trans fluid
  • faulty torque converter
  • low trans pump pressure
  • Blown valve dody gasket
  • restricted trans oil filter
Chk trans fluid with engine running in neutral! Bring to proper same same.

TRANSMISSON PROBLEMS


if its manual sounds like your clutch could be slipping does car smell of burt clutch?
check cluth adjustment
may need new clutch
do stall test with hand brake on, foot (heel-toe) on brake and accel pedal to about 2000rpm then let out clutch and car should stall if engine revs go down and engine still runs but you can rev causing slip and you will now smell what slipping burnt clutch is replace it.

if its auto check trans oil level and what does it look like red-good
darker red to black-bad often smells burnt also possibly new trans required.

From your discription, sounds to me something vital in your transmission has went out. Pull the dip stick and smell the trans. oil if it smells burnt chanses are you need a rebuild or replacement. Even if the oil dosent smell burnt, with that kind of millage and the shuddering when it shifted leads me to that conclusion.
