  2. Clutch change difficulty?

    Problems & Solutions RSX

  14. burnt auto tranny fluid - change or not to change?

    Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Anyone have experience with burnt trans fluid in an auto tranny? Change or not to change? If change, gradual change and mix with old fluid, or complete change with new? Flush is out of the question since it seems that will lead to a failed tranny pretty quickly.
