Transmission fluid smells burnt, trouble engaging gears

Hi Louie, When the ATF smells burned it usually indicates a problem inside the gearbox. Let's hope not though. Drain the ATF oil and then drop the gearbox oil pan. Remove and replace the oil filter and the pan gasket and then refit it. Fill the box with the required amount of transmission fluid. Once filled, make sure the park brake is fully engaged and then check the ATF level with the engine running and the shift in neutral selected. It should be at the top of the lower marks on the transmission dip stick. If the problem persists, the gearbox needs major work or replacement. Regards John

My transmission in my 1996 Chevy 4x4 k2500 jerks real.bad when shifting into 2nd gear and as the engine heats up it won't shift at all?????PLEASE HELP!!!!

Automatic or standard transmision. If it is a automatic check the dip stick and see if the oil is red or black, and if it smells burnt or not. If it is black and smells burnt, you need to overhaul your transmission, which is not unlikell for a 4x4. If it is a std you are still on the verge of needing a new clutch.

4L 60E - 2002 GMC Envoy will not shift into 4th (Drive)

If it indicates on the dash as being in D, but you never feel it shift out of 3, the problem could be as simple as checking your transmission fluid level and top off as needed or a bent linkage that prevents the transmission from engaging D. Try setting the shifter between N and D and see if it shifts up out of 3 to D. If that works, the linkage between the shifter in the cabin has been loosened or bent. This should be a relatively easy fix for your mechanic.

If when checking the transmission fluid level, it is found to be brown or smells burnt; it may indicate a larger, more expensive repair. Transmission fluid should be pinkish / red in color and smell like hydraulic fluid or oil.

I have a 1998 Oldsmobile intrigue (automatic). The car drives fine in reverse, however when I put it in drive, the car does not move. You have to rev the motor up real high for it to move an inch. Any...

The transmission is nearly dry. Add some transmission fluid! Automatic transmissions require oil pressure for the car to move, and if you don't have enough oil in it, it won't build up enough pressure to move the car

My 2002 chevrolet 2500hd 4 wheel drive will not engage. Light does not come on. Worked last winter. Transmission was rebuilt last summer. After about a month, I heard a loud kerplunk. It was real cold here...

I would check the wire harnesses for damage (pinching, cuts and such) from the transfer case. There may be damage from the trans install. Also fuse panels both under hood and interior. Since no lights are on it is probably a fuse or the harness is disconnected.

Auto trans problem

Transmission fluid is low. Drive the car 15 or 20 miles to heat up the transmission. Check the transmission fluid level with the car running in neutral with the parking brake engaged. Add transmission fluid to come to the full mark. Go slow when adding fluid. DO NOT OVER FILL!! This should fix your problem.
