Question about Chevrolet Tahoe
260k on transmission fluid look black smells burnt
Have the fluid replaced . have a pressure test done to determine internal failures. have the bands and clutch packs adjusted. . IF you have been towing something heavy then less speed will reduce the load on the oil.

is sounds like your transmission fluid has overheated. Simply needs the fluid and the filter to be changed on the transmission.

Yes...change the trans fluid...Flush in my opinion is a scam and does nothing more than a normal change, except for removing more $ from your pocket.

The smell you are probably smelling is the fluids that are leaking hitting something hot like the exaust. Unless the leaks are so severe that it takes constant refilling then you should be ok. But be aware that when yu have leaking parts that you must regularly check those fluid levels. Them leaking wont cause major damage, but you not keeping the fluid levels up will. I had a tranny leask in my van for a 1 1/2 and thought it was a expensive fix, but I ended up fixing my leak for about 6 bucks. My point is, check your fluids once a day if not more depending on the severity of the leak.

well then it sounds to me as if you need a transmission replacement...a flush or service at this point won't do you any good, as the transmission is using the contamination in the fluid to build pressure. so if you flush it all away, then the new fluid is way too thin to build any pressure...just replace your transmission....

Never get your transmission flushed if your transmission fluid is burnt, that can only damage the transmission even more causing additional problems.
