If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all. Plus i know a website that sells very cheap but very very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I strongly suggest that you replace the transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt the transmission tends to be sluggish and finds it hard to shift gears. This will surely give great stress to the engine. Once the fluid is replaced, smooth drive and shifting will be noticeable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
