Question about 1999 Mercury Sable
The fluid smell burnt and drives ok, but failed smog check due to traany leak of somekind, and they want 3400 to fix...what may be the problem has 120k
Your modulator valve on the outside rear of the tranny may be leaking tranny fluid into the vacuum line and it it is being burnt and exhausted by the engine. The valve has a thin diaphram within and over a period of time it can leak the fluid into the line. This must be replaced before it becomes a situation where the tranny will not shift out of low gear. Thank you, Dana
