RPMs go high but velocity wont match, smells burnt or overheats easy.

I changed the hose because it blew up last night but tonight it showed me the low coolqnt twice after I had already filled it up twice. The rpma go up to 4000 but velocity is 50-55 mph and feels like a lot less.

Do you
have the same problem?

How does the trans oil look? Red, or dark and smells off or burnt?
