93 Dakota Transmission Problem?
I own a 1993 Dodge Dakota V6 4x4 with about 153,000 miles on it. My truck has been having some issues like sometimes when I drive 65mph my truck rpms will rise to 3,000rpms which is too high and I know that the rpms should be between 1,800 and 2,500rpms for a smooth ride. Another issue I noticed is when I get to 35mph the truck will not shift unless I let off the gas pedal, but the rpms still rise as if the truck is in neutral. So two days ago I checked my transmission fluid and noticed it was very low so I put a quart of ATF + 4 in my automatic transmission and than the next day I noticed a burning rubber smell and realized that the smell was coming from the transmission.
Do you think that the timing belt is causing some problems and why is there a burning smell coming from my automatic Transmission?
Should I get a transmission filter and fluid change?
P.S The issues that I mentioned above happen off and on otherwise the truck runs great.
