--- BLACK FLUID is a BAD sign..... Your TQ Converter is probably on the way out...... Gov Press Solenoid ...... Tran-Speed-Sensor .... Linkage ..... Valve Body ...... All will act up with burnt fluid. Your tranny cannot build the pressure it needs with hot fluid...The hot fluid is from the slipping TQ-Converter... Once the fluid cools down it gets thicker and can build pressure quicker... 140K out of your Auto is rare with no issues to date. Very problematic Auto tranny! Buy a performance tranny for $500 to $1000 more then what you are going to pay for a rebuilt 50k at best piece....... Don't waste your money throwing it at the other stuff..... You will end up replacing the unit very soon anyway!
