If the oil is not cherry red or smells burnt then there was not an oil change done
for oil to burn in such a short time, you would have had indications of problems early on and not a few days later.
for transmission problems run the fault codes as they will give a good indication of problems that are repairable
If you are still worried, have an accredited transmission shop do a pressure test , band and clutch pack adjustment and a filter clean ,then fill with new oil. The pan will be off to do the adjustments and filter so any major failure will be noticeable at that time.

If the transmission fluid is full and the linkage connected then you have but one choice here the transmission has failed. I have seen this exact scenario come through the door of the shop dozens of times, drove fine then nothing the next day or an hour later or 10 minutes later. The cause, a faulty clutch pack or a failed hydraulic pressure pump or a internal leak in the high pressure fluid circuit that applies the clutch packs.

Transmission oil smells burned,when you drive and the fluid gets hot it will not move but when fluid cold it goes find.Whinning noise coming from trans.sounds like pump starving


You may have 1 chance to save the transmission before it is too late.
Take it to a reliable auto center for a transmission flush, filter, and re-fill.
If you do not your clutch packs will be burned up, if they are not already.

Transmission started smoking going up hill, got us home, but 3 days later I went to move the car and the trans went out? meaning when I step on the gas it doesnt accelorate in any gear D over D or 1st....


It needs to be rebuilt or changed. Your best bet would probably get a used one at a scrapyard and replace it. Most scrapyards will provide some warranty, usually 30 days. Hope this helps.

My 2000 lincoln ls transmission is slipping only when i give it gas


have you ever had the trans fluid changed? it's a 9 year old car, its due. check the fluid, if it smells burnt- the clutches are fried. time to overhaul it or buy a rebuilt trans. the worst thing i seen people do to their car is while sitting at a stop light ( that has a slight incline) and not keep their foot on the brake. just letting the car hold itself while waiting for the light to change. (been there, done that, now i have a new trans).

I installed an aod transmission on an 88 cougar and I have everything hooked up and it will not engage and spin the tires. what could this be


THREE POSSIBILITIES:1/BAD TRANSMISSION FLUID PUMP
2/ CLOGGED TRANSMISSION FILTER
3/CLUTCH DISCS WORN BEYOND MINIMUM SPECS.
IF FLUID IS DIRTY AND SMELLS LIKE IT IS BURNED, THEN CHANGE THE FLUID AND FILTER BY TAKING OFF THE TRANSMISSION PAN AND PULLING DOWN THE FILTER. IF YOU PURCHASE THE FILTER KIT, IT SHOULD COME WITH A NEW GASKET. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA

96 caprice classic not shifing from 2nd to 3rd


check transmission fluid level first if it is full or if it is milky looking or smell cooked change the fluid and filter because the screen in the filter maybe plugged and not allowing the fluid to go to the troque converter

It seems that the trans is slipping. The smell is from excess trans flood. If Trans is over filled, it can rupture seals and cause leaking that can get on the exhaust and burn.
