While on a rear brake and oil changing whim, I checked the trans fluid and it is brown. It scared me, I thought trans fluid was always pink. I also heard that it would smell burnt if it was bad, and this didn't, it smelled just like the jug of it I have n the garage for the truck, which is very much pink.
Regardless, it's getting replaced tomorrow, so how much of a job is it to change the fluid and filter on a 3.4 liter Impala?
And of course the big question, has irreversible damage occurred here? Keep in mind it smells perfectly fine, it just looks funky.
