I replaced the filter, and changed fluid last year. I didn't do a flush on that, so only half of the fluid came out.
Two days ago I replaced the radiator and lost some fluid on that. I poured about a quart into it.
I think my transmission's fluid is at the right level. when the engine has been running for a few minutes, the level is right above the cold mark on the keep stick.
I didn't smell the fluid but when it came out, it looked dark. I will try to smell the fluid to see if it's what you said.
I only hope for an easy fix as it will be hard for me to work on the transmission if there is any wrong with it.
but it's still nice to know what is wrong with it. I'm afraid to take it to the shop. The car only worth few thousands now. To replace the transmission, it can cost me more than that.
My car jerks but it isn't that bad, only in sharp corner turns.
