For a car with an automatic transmission, pull the dipstick and smell the fluid. If it smells burnt, chances are the transmission hasn't been serviced properly. You can also take the oil filler cap off and look on the underside for sludge buildup. If it coats the underside of the oil cap, its probably all over the inside of the motor as well.
