Noticed this last night a couple times while running some deliveries... after running out 1st gear the truck will give off a slight burnt fluid smell. Never noticed it before but could it be from basically cruising around slowly all night and outta nowhere just opening it up?

I've noticed that happens with my exhaust where if I keep the truck under 2k rpms (driving around neighborhoods) it will really pop when I break 4-5k rpms i'm assuming because of the intense heat all of the sudden.

Any theroys? i'm gonna go out and check my tranny fluids color right now since the trucks been sittin over night... i'll report back soon.

I would guess that the delivery driving would have something to do with it, my friend's Honda used to do that...but, then again, he had 174K on his Honda. :lol:

check it out, let us know what's up.

Fluids still a nice clean red... should be to was changed like 20k miles ago.

Anyways its just odd because i've been doing deliveries for quite some time now and this is the first I noticed it.

Oh well truck still drives great and shifts clean and quiet so i'll just keep my nostrils and ears open :lol:
