Well burnt fluid is never a good sign. Their may be more to it then a torque converter, it could actually be a simple thing such as the TPS to the TCC. But usually if it's a TCC issue you will throw a MIL code. Anyway's if you want I can drive down with some tools and take a look for you, just pay for the gas and that's it. I might be able to fix it on the spot if not then at least you have as second opinion of what's wrong. But it is possible the torque converter is shot the OEM ones I can say do suck. But the burnt fluid is rising concern. Anyways you think about it and I'll think about what might be wrong, but first step is to yea get it moving so you can have a fluid exchanger hooked up because you're going to want to have that old fluid removed before you really fix anything because the old fluid won't do it's job for replaced parts if you know what I mean.
Please keep me posted, I am very interested in this issue.
