The cheapest initial fix would be to replace the fluid and clean the filter. Try that and see how it goes. Either way it needs to be done.

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.

In an auto trans the diff is the same grade fill as the trans, Dexron III.

I am smelling burnt oil when i get out of my car and something is driping in my drive way but when i continually check the oil it is never low where could this be coming from?

You could be looking at brake fluid,power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, anti-freeze, hypoid gear oil (stick shift), or even engine oil (a little oil goes a long way). Burnt oil says valve cover gasket dripping on the manifold. valve cover gaskets are for the most part easy to get to and fairly easy to change. If the outside is leaking some times the inside is leaking into the spark plug holes. Degrease the engine and if it is easy do it yourself.

Transaxle... How to check and change fluids on 91 Toyota Corolla

Toyota uses Dex III ATF. You can buy from Wal-Mart:

1) Cheaper: Super Tech DEX III ATF $10/gal
2) Better: Valvoline MaxLife DEX/MER ATF $18/gal

Both are compatible, depending on how much you care about your car and how deep your pockets are :)

To check ATF fluid, look for an orange/red color dipstick (similar to the yellow dipstick for engine oil). You need to have the car in running temperature, shift through from Park, N, D, ... then back to D, N, Park (stopping for a few seconds in each gear). Then go to measure your fluid level.

If you haven't check it ever, it might be pale brown, which may look clean to you, but very deceivingly... becaue it should look red-ish / pinkish. When chemicals broken down in ATF, the red-ish color disappears. It may even be brown and smell burnt, that just mean your transmission is not in a very good shape.

If you do change the ATF, it's good to put a bottle of Lucus Oil brand "STOP SLIP / TRANSMISSION FIX" in it during your fluid change. It is a 24oz. bottle cost about $12 @ Wal-Mart or any auto stores. It will extend your transmission's life regardless. I highly recommend that.
