This is water in your fuel lines. when it was very cold, the water in the lines froze. when it melts, it runs to the injector system and causes these types of things to happen during acceleration. i would pick up some techtron. ths is good stuff. it will remove the water and, clean out the fuel system.

Yes and no.
No if it is still working you probably did not break anything for now.
Yes the damage you did will probably shorten the life of the transmission.
You might want to drain the trans fluid to see if you have any large pieces of metal floating around. I would not change the filter if the trans has never been serviced.

Transmission delayed engagement at cold start


Depending on how Cold it is where you are, The cold will effect the Operation of the Tranny. I am pretty sure that your Tranny is Fine, Just Really Cold. Depending also on where you live, I use Valvoline Quick Change to service my Vehicles when I am on the Road. Have never had a Problem with them. On the Fluid, They make so many Different Kinds now adays that it is hard to Choose. Look in the Back of your Owners Manual and Use what is Suggested in there.

Will not shift out of park until warm


There is a shift interlock solenoid under the center consule. Try putting the ignition key with the car off in between off and crank position. Then put the car in neutral start the vehicle and engage gear selector normally. however you would have to do this every time the car is turned off. if that works try unplugging the solenoid itself. you woill have to take the top off off the shifter assembly< (not hard though) the car will operate fine without solenoid hooked up but you WILL LOOSE the safety aspect of the way it was origanally designed hope this helps GOOD LUCK and GOD BLESS AMERICA
