    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.

    Yes there was, i hope thats what it was, driving all day yesterday and this morning and no smell or problems.

    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:
