    Angry Changed Gear Oil. Burnt Smell?

    I just changed my tranny oil to 75 90 mobil 1 synth. I took it for a test drive an i didn't notice much difference besides the fact that it shifted easier. All the tranny noises are still there. I filled it up right on the dot of F, it was over but I had to carefully pump some out. But when I took a wiff of the stock tranny oil, it had a slight burnt smell, with some kind of sweet smell behind it. Is this normal? Because I know burnt is not a good smell for any oil, which means lots of heat was there at one point. Feedback please!

    sounds normal...you may have just spilled some tranny oil somewhere on the car, it will go away after it burns away...
