The black color of your fluid is likely caused by worn hard parts.
Valve body replacement will not correct for worn parts.

If I was to shotgun parts at it hoping for the best, a whole new (used) valve body, fluid and filter. You can find whole, bench tested valve bodies with solenoids for $100 on ebay.
