Default Transmission repairs

I have a 96 Tacoma, auto, 2wd, 86000 miles. I feel the transmission
slipping very slightly when when I do a very quick start. The fluid is
brownish but doesn't smell burnt. Any experience with the Transmission
Chains i.e.. Lee Miles, AAmco, etc.?
TIA
Howard

When's the last time you changed/flushed the transmission fluid?

The experience I had with transmission chains was not good.

Step one is to change the fluid, drive a while, then change it again.

Be sure to change the filter.

Actually there is no transmission "filter."
Toyota calls this part a "strainer."
The difference would be that filter media, like an air filter or an oil
filter collects fine particles which eventually will restrict flow
whereas a strainer only sifts out larger particles and would not become
restricted.
With an air filter you have airborne grit, with an engine oil filter
you have wear particles and carbon, but if the transmission fluid is
changed regularly, and the magnets in the pan are collecting and
trapping any wear particles - BTW magnets trap finer particles than
most filters, -- there's nothing left to filter in the transmission -
only the strainer as insurance against larger particles contaminating
the valve body prior to being trapped by the magnets.
There is no filter.

Try changing out the strainer (use a new one, don't just try to clean
the old one). Fram has a nice kit with cork/rubber gasket. Clean off
the metal sludge from the pan. Refill ATF fluid to the proper level.
And see how that works before doing any major work.
