Alright. So I didn't see anything in the forums about this but lately I have been manually shifting from first to second and then usually just to drive. But I feel like I get more power when I'm in drive under 35mph and shift it to first instead of using the push the gas pedal all the way down to get more power (that's what it says in the manual). So I recently just noticed that when I shift from first to second to third to drive that I start to smell a burning smell.. Best way i can describe it is like when a vacum filter is clogged an it smells like burning s**t. I havnt noticed anything wrong. Just recently did my first oil change and the transmission fluid is a yellow clear color (full). Also tempature never goes over the half way mark. Sorry if this post seems rushed, my laptop stopped working so I'm posting this from my iPhone. Thank you for any help in advance!

Transmission fluid a yellow, clear color? Not sure if that's the correct transmission fluid... correct me if I'm wrong.

Why are you manually shifting an automatic? The only reason you have the options for 1, 2 and 3 are for engine braking and getting out of snow... there are certain components not designed for the stress you are putting them under...

Also the trans fluid should be pink (at least every brand of compatible fluid I have used is pink).

If you are smelling burning, you probably destroyed your transmission...

Well I believe it's yellow cause of a transmission repair I put in it over last winter? My transmission does seem to shift harder into second and putting it from neutral to reverse to neutral to drive makes the car shake and feels like it's going into the gear hard. I've been riding like this ever since last winter and my performance seems perfectly fine. I want to do a transmission flush... But I've never done one. Is it just as easy as a oil change? I want to change the pan & gasket also which I have ordered off of parts for your car.

Also, I know that manually shifting can't be good but I feel like get more power and when I shift it from one to two when it reaches the red line, I like the backfire that comes out of my exhaust. Ughh... Don't think Doing all that was a good idea.

Do you go past 5900 RPM? Stock you shouldn't.

If you don't like the way the car is shifting you tune it, not try to manually do things.

It sounds like your transmission is totally shot, especially if you put some mechanic in a bottle in. If you want you can drop the pan and change the filter, but I think you'll be shopping for a new transmission in pretty short order after that.

From what i understand, there is about 26 little clutches inside an impala transmission. When you keep it in first and engine brake the car and have it backfire i believe that its wearing down those clutches. That right there could be the smell that youre noticing

Drive the car as it was built to be driven, if u want to shift get a stick shift.
Trans repair in a bottle, not one of your smartest moves. You don't need a new pan, just filter and gasket and fluid.
Yellow in color, can't be good.
You may want to stick a fork in it, 'cause it sounds like it's cooked. Good luck. Cool

It shouldn't let him go past 5900 or 6000. The pcm has a limit at which it will shift gears even if you are manually selecting a certain gear. You could go WOT in 1 and the car will upshift automatically.

1. Don't manually shift an automatic transmission on a daily basis.
2. Don't use quick fix fluids instead of doing proper repairs. Dexron is pink. Whatever you have in there is not Dexron.
3. Don't flush your transmission. You'll dislodge bits of metal and then you're really in the deep end.
4. Backfire and afterfire are two different things.

As other's have said it's good to manual shift. Hopefully you'll get this problem resolved with a little money as possible.

How much extra power do you think your getting by manualing shifting? Are you racing for every second every time you drive? If your in that much of a hurry maybe its time for a little race car.

Or he needs to leave a little earlier if he is rushing to where ever he is headed.
