Lol, i played cat and mouse with a newer saab this morning for about 7 miles taking my girl to work this morning and a few times the tranny i guess downshifted to hard or something.

Anywho, at the next stoplight i came to i smelled burning. Does the torque converter burn like a clutch does? If not what could it have been?

I think it was the converter. :dunno:

It stopped smelling like not even 60 seconds after. But there was still a hint of ghost smell after i parked it at home.

I hope i dont have a leak, i bet i dont though. Where and what kind of leak would cause a temporary smell like that resulting int he forementioned conditions? :dunno:
