Transmission fluid smell
I have a 2005 E350 6.0 PSD Sportsmobile 4x4 van with about 36000 miles. After much research, I opted to do my own transmission fluid flush using the warm the tranny and drain from the pan and return line process & replaced the outboard filter with a WIX 57702 (did not drop the pan and do the internal filter). Every thing went well. I replaced with the Amsoil fluid that states Mercon SP compatible. I kept track of the outgoing fluid and replacement fluid quantity.
Ever since I flushed it, I notice that the tranny feels smoother which is great, but I get a bad transmission fluid smell when I decelerate and very bad when I come to a stop. I've checked and double checked the fluid level and all appears to be fine. I thought it was a burnt smell at first, but opened a new bottle of fluid to compare and the smell is the same as the new (kind of bad).
I have no leaks anywhere that I can see.
I'm also now getting a rotten egg smell every now and then (blamed the dog the first time, but wasn't him) which I do not know it is related to the other smell.
I do not have a tranny temp guage, so unfortunately I can't monitor that. I've posted this over on DieselStop forum as well, but figured I'd see if anyone here has experienced the same smell.
Any ideas appreciated? I am completely stumped.
