automatic i assume? the trans could be slipping if trans fluid is brownish red and smells kinda like burnt catpiss that is an indacation . if someone tells you its slipping and needs to be replaced put new trans filter and fluid change first i have had alot of success with tranies just doing that and its relatively cheap
You are in the early stages of transmission failure. Fluid that smells burnt is not good, it means the clutch's are slipping. Your RPM's may not be going up by a noticeable amount, but they are. You've got some time, a can of something like Lucas trans conditioner will help to put of the inevitable, but you should start looking for options in the rebuild or replace department.Hope this helps.
Hi there.This is a common problem with these trans.Its the forward clutches that good bad.First and reverse are together in the same pack The reason it slips when its warmed up is that the fluid is thicker and wont slip by the clutches until it is warmed up.A good way to check this is to look at the dip stick and if it has blackish gray cooler stuff on it it is for sure the clutches.Also if your at a stand still with the truck and in drive if you punch the gas does the rpms race up.The a good indication the the trans is going bad.I hope this helps you and Have A Great Day.
Only way rpms will flair is if trans has low pressure at any time (and allowing internal clutches to slip) or, if the lock up converter is not remaining engaged). This is not an engine problem. Someone needs to drive this with a scanner attached and monitor systems.Other than an internal problem, could be a shift control module, speed sensor or even a problem with something as seemingly unrelated as a brake light switch.
