Was it low from a leak?
How much fluid was added?
Did you add the correct fluid?
What is the fluid condition, meaning odor and color?
Most likely the new fluid and the addition of new additives, has cleaned away some of the gunk buildup around the seals and washed it out to be collected by the filter now allowing the previously worn piston seals to no longer be able to hold pressure, which allows the clutches to slip. This would result i na overhaul required.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks for the update. At this point no the flush is not going to help, likely to make it even worse. The burnt fluid means the clutches have slipped enough to overheat and burn the fluid. Overhaul or replacement is the needed fix.
