You should take it to a place that can change the fluid as soon as possible but, if the tranny fluid has not been change as it regularly should, it could cause more problems for you. There is no quick fix for this so don't waste your money.

Slipping means the trans in most cases is shot Trans fluid is red like you said. You can try replacing the fluid, it might make it better, but worth a shot for a small price and a little amount of time. Use Dex/Merc, but slipping means the clutches are burnt. So time for a rebuild or replacement. Hope you got the trooper for a good price.
