Just a Thought


I've had similar problems on other type vehicles and eventually conceded to the idea of draining the tranny fluid, not only out of the pan but the torque converter as well. I changed the filter of course and refilled the tranny. Drive the car easy starting out to insure the torque converter has refilled with fluid (check fluid level before driving,torque converter will take some to fill). After a few days of driving the problem went away and shifting has been smooth ever since. I would say that contaminated fluid, in my case anyway was never being drained from the torque converter in previous fluid changes and it finally gummed up the pistons in the valve body. A few days of running completely fresh fluid dissolved the gummed up valve and all was back to normal. Just a thought
