Shortly after purshasing the car (had 150k at time of purchase) I had to have a transmission valve replaced. Within a month the trans quit entirely. About 9 months later the new (refurbished) trans is leaking fluid. I have to put a qt or so in every month or two, about $16 a qt.

Drips oil when parked needed to seal gaskets still leaks oil smells like fire burning when car is turned off. At 114000 transmission was sealed after driving for about 900 miles the transmission fluid leaked out put transmission fluid in and drove 900 miles and seemed to stop but then then oil turned dark and started leaking again and when i would stop car and turn it off it started smelling like something underneath was burning. The burning smell. Would go away after car cooled down
Severe leaking of transmission fluid, not easily diagnosed, and definitely not a cheap fix!
