In the summer time is this still a problem? Have you ever tried reving the engine a little maybe 1400-1500 rpms to see if it goes in gear<---- Keep in mind that this is very hard on the tranny if it does suddenly go into gear... If the trans is the original it may be due for an overhaul
I just bought the car in December. I havent drove it in warm weather yet.

I do have a coupn for a very good tranmission place that say

"Automatic transmission Tune up"

Includes New Transmission Fluid
Filter
New Pan Gasket
Vacuum Test
Hydraulic Test
Complete Adjustments
Road Test
NO HIDDEN CHARGES

All for a nice price.

Would this be a good idea for my trans?

Yes, there is. The Vacuum Modulator is adjustable.

Oh.. hehe Sowwy.

Adjust clutches and bands? Uh huh, sure. I'd like to see a shop rip out a transmission to just adjust the clutches.

my old 87 4t60 trans (orignal) did that AFTER i had a flush at 210,000. 10,000 miles later the torque converter died, not sure if they were related problems... of if this is even relevant to your situation.

Don't worry, all they are going to do is take out your engine/tranny [probably going to be the high school dropout sitting in the corner admiring his sandwich that will be performing the work], then they are going to take apart the transmission [don't worry about that either, only 50% of the transmissions that are taken apart don't work]. Then do their adjustments. After that, they are going to put it all back together, all back into the car. All in a matter of a few weeks. Doesn't sound that bad to me.

/sarcasm.

All they will do is hook your car up to this machine, that will pump air through your tranny [i think] pushing the fluid out, while replacing it with new fluid. Or just drop the pan, drain refil [not a tranny flush].

Try warming up your transmission before you go. Put it in gear for 30 seconds or so before you move to get fluid moving around.

You could just set the parking brake when you start it in the morning and put the trans in neutral....Then the pump will start circulating fluid throughout the trans. That should warm it up a bit.

I said i was ina hurry when i did that. I was running late for work and i noticed that the car trans went through all 5 gears and was cold. I thought that was strange. Normally when the car is cold like that, the torque converrter wont work until the temp is at 150* or highrer.
