My transmission will not engage in overdrive and acts like it is slipping. I smelled of the transmission fluid and it smells burnt. If i replace the fluid in the pan what about the fluid in the torque converter?

    Hi,
    Did you end up changing the fluid? Did it help with the overdrive problem?
    Thanks!

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if your tranny fluid smells burnt than yoour automatic clutch is shot and its time for a rebuild or a new transmission one way to keep from your transmission from burning clutches is to service your transmission every 5000 miles
