1992 Subaru Legacy LS 4x4 4 Cyl 2.2L

Transmissions & Drivetrains

Why Does my Subaru Legacy rev but not speed up when I press on the gas?

I have a 1992 automatic Subaru Legacy Wagon LS 4x4. When I first start the car and begin to push on the gas to speed up the engine will rev but the car will not speed up. If I let off the gas and press again it will work fine. It only does it when I am coming from being still to going up in speed. I checked the transmission fluid and it smells normal but it is a little brown colored not the cherry red which it should be. Could this be my problem and will the only thing I need to do is change the transmission fluid?
