Auto transmission - shifting problems when "cold"

Recommended Posts

96 SE auto transmission issue. When cold (driving for the first time in the day) it doesn't shift properly, almost stalls out if accelerate hard and then come to a stop shortly after, like it is stuck in a higher gear and won't shift down as expected when slowing down.

 

Cold means not having been driven yet for the day. The issue is the same whether it is 5F or 60F, if it is the first time driving for the day.

 

This issue has become progressively worse over the past couple of years.

 

Mechanical issue or a fluid issue? Best way to start to diagnose and/or resolve?

That is typically called "morning sickness."  I swapped my valve body with a $50.00 junk yard one and it bought me a year or so until I got a rebuilt transmission.
