: WHEN THE CAR IS COLD, IT WILL NOT SHIFT OUT OF 1ST FOR A QUARTER MILE REGARDLESS OF WHAT SPEED THE CAR IS TRAVELING. AFTER THE FIRST SHIFT IT PERFORMS CORRECTLY UNTIL THE NEXT TIME THE CAR SITS FOR MORE THAN 6 HOURS. THE MECHANIC HAS PUT THE CAR ON 2 DIFFERENT MACHINES TO TEST IT AND BOTH COMPUTERS FIND NO PROBLEM.
: ANY HELP? PLEASE ADVISE.
Tell him to replace the check ball, clean the valve body.replace the tranny oil,all the oil...he might have to lower the tranny to do it.Replace filter.Prepare to pay $1000.The oil cost$32 a liter,or youcan use red line oil.How many miles do you have?
