Take it to a mechanic and see if your transmission needs flushed. A good sign it does is your transmission fluid will be dirty and smell funny.
EG9 K20A3 4/4/2012I've noticed there has been kind of a burning smell coming from under the hood. Would this have something to do with why the dash lights have been flickering? - Yeah probably, anything that smells burnt is not something to ignore, im online chief, i will unable to locate it. What i can help you with though is when you find the source, i can help you DIY it.
I would say somewhere between $30.00- to upwards of $115.00. Some vehicles require special fluid, such as the chrysler a604 automatic transmission, the use of other than specified fluid in some units may very well cause partial to full transmission failure. In short, use caution in choosing who you use to perform this task. hope this helps.
