Look at the transmission fluid color, if it is dark and smells burnt then most likely some crud has wound up int the valve body and shift solenoids, if that is the case then the tranny won't last long. If the fluid is a good red color then you might be able to replace the solenoid assembly's to get the solenoids switching again.
