Answers :

Yes, when you burn your transmission fluid, its just like when you burn your motor oil. Lower vescosity means more friction. more friction, more heat, more heat messes with your sensors inside the trans causing them to send a code to the ecm. do a filter change and transmission flush. clear the code and retest.
