92 Ford F150 Won't go forward.

My truck won't go forward, reverse is fine. the fluid has been between red and brown for some time but recently took on the slightly burnt smell after I topped off my low fluid level with about a half a quart of new fluid. Would putting in the wrong fluid cause this? The tag on my door with tran code E suggests i have the E4Od tran. If i put it on 1 and rev it a bit it will move but not well. ended up driving it home 5 miles in reverse at about 25 mph ( that got me some odd stares ) what are the steps to finding out what the problem is? Drop the pan and check for debris? do a full fluid flush? partial fluid flush? How much fluid does the tran hold? just pump it out of the dipstick and fill back? It has about 180k miles on it but the fluid's been changed about every 50k. assume i have moderate mechanical ability, just never took apart an auto tran. any steps to finding the problem would be helpful. thanks in advance

OK, the Old transmission had a fried sun gear, whatever that was, along with other items wearing out and it was cheaper to drop another E4oD tranny in. After I installed it it ran fine for a few hundred miles of breaking in the tranny. Fluid levels are fine, Fluid is new, new filter gasket and pan. Everything. 2k miles later, happens again, started to lose forward gears slowly at first, then altogether. Still have reverse. Replaced the Dtr/Tr (neutral switch / Manual Lever Position Sensor, whatever ) to no avail. Reset my comp and everything else is working fine, no codes, no check engine light, nothin. When i put the truck in drive once again it feels like the transmission engages, and there's even a slight jerk, but no forward. Is it time to drive the truck off a cliff?
