When I take off and have to stop before my 1999 dodge avenger changes to the next gear it will cut off.Also when I back up it will cut off and it smells like burnt oil.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Paula, I would suggest that you take this to an ASE certified shop or dealership so that this problem can be properly diagnosed. Unfortunately there are too many variables to try and diagnose this vehicle without seeing it. It is possible that you are having a problem with the transmission, but this is only one of many things that could be happening. Lori Johnson
