Just "limped home" so to speak. The auto park light came on and stayed
on. I checked fluid level which was normal and decided to make a go
for home (200 miles) from where we were. Made it 88 miles and then the
burning smell of brake and tranny fluid from the auto apply parking brake
hitting the exhaust. Since I was on a busy highway and it was dark out,
I cut the cable(yes, after chocking the wheels) to the parking brake drum It freed
up the brake so I was able to drive home. The worst thing was the
stench that lingered from the smell of toasted brake and fluid.
Has anyone had the same problem and could you tell me what the
repair was for? ie. pressure switch etc..?
I took the panel off the hydraulic assembly today and could
not tell where the atf fluid had leaked
out from. The fluid was everywhere, including on the toad
