    Burnt fluid is a major red flag, first start saving for a new transmission, it wont last much longer,

    before long it will start to slip

    To keep it going a little longer , get the fluid and filter changed, along with a flush, this may help.

    most likely you have a blockage in the detent valve for 2nd gear cleaning may remove it

    but if the fluid is burnt the damage is already done
