If your tranny is missing half its fluid, find the leak, THEN drain and repair it if not too many $$ -- or -- take it to a tranny shop you TRUST -- not aamco or any of those chains.

You may have damaged the internal pump or something else by starving it of fluid/lubrication, thus wrecking other internal parts or causing sufficient wear to produce this sound. Some issues with this transmission can actually wear a hole in the transmission case, creating both a leak and the sound of metal on metal that made the hole.

You can find junkyard trannys but they are disappearing.

The color should be red and not smell burnt. Sniff it again and see if that oil smell is actually a burnt smell.
