any clutch material in the fluid? Usually if its burnt and smelly you probably have burnt up some clutches.

fluid is just dirty, I looked inside the filter,I didnt find any chunks

clutch material is pretty fine usually, there wouldnt be chunks. sounds like the transmission needs to overhauled. or taken somewhere and make sure its nothing electronic causing the issue.
