Brown/Black is not good. Do you know where you fall in line in the succession of ownership? Worst comes to worst, I'd recommend a rebuild by a competent transmission guy over replacement or ditching the car. Mine ran me $1,800 last year and the car's performance has been phenomenal. Then again, I love it to death, plus it's paid off.

Yeah, using the wrong fluid could play hell with the transmission.
