Re: Burnt brown transmission fluid-Now what?
I would take it to the local dealer and have the tranny fluid FLUSHED.....NOT changed. Since it is brown and smells burnt already then it is BEST to have the whole system flushed. THis will also get all the fluid out of your torque converter where just "changing" the tranny fluid would not get the fluid out of your converter. It will also help in shifting as well. Its not the cheapest to have done but will help in the long run with the life of your tranny. It usually costs anywhere from 100-130 bucks around my parts. Just call some Ford dealers and check in on it!!
