Expert:  Gary replied 4 years ago.
ok since the fluid is full and you have 1st and 2nd gear the 3/4 clutches are burnt out inside the needs to come out and be rebuilt or to save alot of money you can have a slavage yard/junk yard transmission installed
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Would the fluid smell burnt
Expert:  Gary replied 4 years ago.
it may be a little dark usually when the fluid is burnt it is because all the clutches have burnt up.this is just the 3/4 clutch pack that has gone bad.usually will not smell burnt for just those clutches
