I wish I could help, but I have change fluid and filter 3 times now and it still is giving me shifting problems. Sorry Make sure you used the right fluid... ATF+3, #7176 specially formulated for the Chrysler A604 (41TE) 4 spd automatic. I just returned from the transmission shop who repaired leaks in my tranny. They put in the wrong fluid and the car searched to shift and "bump shifted" into 1st when stopping. I made them put the correct fluid in... and within an hour, the problem was gone. the A604 also has a electronic shift solenoid which has been a bit of problem on these transmissions, which will cause it to shutter between shifts and down shift very hard, if it gets to severe the computer will only let the trans. stay in first gear, until the computer can have the code reset or flashed by the service shop. but this will repeat itself if the shift solenoid is faulty.

Is it necessary to change the filter everytime the fluid is changed?

The manual on my Ranger PU states that the filter must be changed every time the transmission fluid is changed. I always change my oil filter when changing oil, because if you don't, you leave 1 quart of dirty oil in the system. Filters are fairly inexpensive, so I would recommend putting in a new one with every fluid change.

It is unlikely that the transmission would fail after a fluid change. The transmission filter should be changed at the same time. If it was not changed at the same time it could have caused the issue.

It means the fluid needs to be changed. The burnt smell means the transmission has overheated at least once. Change your fluid and filter and hope for the best. Transmission fluid needs to be changed every 50,000 miles.
