Transmission fluid index based on colors- This is an easy 4 color system which can help you find out whether there is a problem with your transmission fluid and it needs to be replaced.

– A translucent, reddish-brown fluid which has little or no odor, should not be changed. This color is an indication it is still clean.

– A beige/light orange fluid with a slight burnt odor, indicates that the fluid has been used for a while and may need replacement soon.

– A black or dark brown, viscous fluid, with strong burnt odor indicates that it is time to replace the fluid.
