1984 c4 corvette/ trans problem

1984 c 4 corvette automatic 139,000 miles. I didnt drive the car for four months and only started it twice. Now when I take off tranny does not want to shift to second until warmed up or I give it high rpms. Second to third etc all the same. Trans fluid was two pints low( never had a leak ) filled it up,was some what better drove for 45 minutes and trans seem to be fine. Went back out today same deal. Engine idle 54 to 62 tack up and down.up and down. Could this be a vac leak to the modulator on tranny I HOPE. Not sure if it has one to tell the truth.When in gear tranny does not slip just does not want to change gears until warmed up. Have not serviced tranny in ???? who knows.

    Fixed it myself. The car sat 4 months and being a 1985 the plates in the tranny were sticking. NAPA has this stuff called LUCAS Transmission Fix. It will do wonders for your Tranny. Cleans and Lubricates Sticking Valves For Proper Shifting. Polymetric film renews worn bands to stop slipping.. Stops hard shifting too. Great styff saved me $$$$$$$$$ in my Corvette. Try it.

    does an 84 vette have a vacuum modulator? what controls the shift points in an 84 vette? i removed the cross fire and installed an edelbrock 750 and it runs great just wont shift at all.

I believe if the throttle position sensor signal does not match the signal from some other (forget which) the computer will not allow converter lock up. Fix problem with TPS first.

1996 Corvette will not start


You may have a loose battery cable or a corroded one, clean as needed. Also listen if you hear a "click" noise from the starter, if so replace the starter the starter solenoid contacts are burnt. I have a 1996 C4 and have had this problem twice now in 80,000 miles, both times it was the starter solenoid (it is rebuild-able). You can buy a new on on eBay for cheap.

The car has 139,000 miles on it. Should I trust the transmission


Absolutely not

If you did not change the trans fluid
every 30,000 miles since new,it about
worn out,so to speak

That goes for your steering rack also,
if you never change the P/S fluid every 30,000
