    Thin. Does it smell like cork? Is the fluid gritty? What do you need a transmission for, if you live in it?

    Very thin (like brake fluid), red, and no burnt odor. Try changing the transmission filter and fluid. If that doesn't fix the problem then head to the transmission shop. STAY AWAY FROM AAMCO!!!

      Listen to what In and al advised you. First try it yourself or go to a jiffy lube to replace the filter. Rebuilding or replacing a transmission can be very costly and take days to complete.

    When an automatic tranny slips it's junk and needs rebuilding.

    About 30wt but the fact that you think that is a legitimate worry means you haven't a clue.

    Make sure the fluid level is correct

    It is not burnt smelling

    If above ok, replace the trans filter,

    If that doesn't do it take it to AAMCO for service.

    it's about as thick as cooking (vegetable) oil. Try changing your trans filter.
