What kind of tranny fluid are you putting in her? If your not already using it, may I suggest Valvoline maxx Life?

Bandit I am sorry I didn't see this post before. When I had my 94 SLE it had the same issue. In the morning all I did was go straight to 1 and then put it in drive and go. I wouldn't have to do it if I drove it often but if I let sit for more than 12 hrs I had to go down to one first. I drove like this for 12,000 miles till I got rear ended in it. Just so you don't waist, time Lucas or similar products don't work. What Hotz28 said is also what my trans guys said happened to it. I wish you luck bud.

I had a thought about this last night. Do you think a adjustable shift modulator would help? You ca tighten it up a bit so that it has more strength too go into gear.

they may help the 1-2 shift but will not help the going into gear problem i think.

Also now its starting to have a problem when iv been driving it for lets say... 15min or so none stop and then i come to a light and it will not go into 1st it will go into N or something thats not moving

but then it will got back in if i tap the gas for throw it into 1st gear

Mine does the exact same thing. LOL, i couldnt have put it in better words. Whenever the temp is lower then 20 it does this. Once i get it to shift into drive then it is fine. I have no clue what it is.

Between the two of you guys I'll call myself lucky.. Went to go to work the other morning and had Ice on the car( weird for Florida ).... Car went right into gear with no issues..

Are you guys going to swap a trans later or rebuild?

I might put a used one in til i am done college. I dont have the 3000 to drop in a rebuild right now but once i grad (5000 sign on bonus and 28 an hour) then i am rebuilding and buyinga nice turbo setup from matt. I dont have this problem much because i usually dont drive my car when it is cold but i have had clinicals in the morning lately and the lastfew mornings it has been around 20-25 below.
