I have found a lot of older car's transmissions act weird during the winter until warmed up.

One member that was having shifting problems and wondered whether a trans job was in his future, found that one of the rubber vacuum tube connectors was hard and brittle going to the vacuum modulator.

Not a bad idea to check the tubes and connections out.

The 190e (1987 w/ 220k miles) shifts very firmly cold, but warm is nice and smooth.
