Transmission issue

Hello Guys

About two thousand miles ago I had my trans flushed (32rh) since that time a few things have happened

1. A fluid leak I cannot find , looks like it coming from the driver side where the cooler lines attach. I even removed my front drive shaft for a better view, and btw the dipstick reads that the level is normal

2. The jeep will not move either forward or reverse until the engine has run for about 20 seconds.

3. Today while driving a very short distance it struggled to maintain 50 mph and developed a burning smell. I returned home let it idle for a few minutes and checked the fluid which looked normal color and normal level.

I am kinda stumped here and ideas as to what the issue may be , I appreciate any ideas.


Thanks Pat

Hope you're wrong about that. I see where you are going, I think. I just changed mine myself, but was unable to remove the filter, so couldn't change it. It did not appear clogged and the old fluid did not appear very dirty. I'll have to keep an eye on mine.

I didn't think about a clogged filter preventing the AT fluid from the pan from circulating through the AT.

To the OP, I'd have that checked asap.
