Question about Cars & Trucks
The transmission will not shift into gear immediately, the engine revs then kicks into gear. it also flutters between gears when accelerating. What would cause this issue, a sensor ?
In 1976, there weren't any sensors in transmissions that I remember, didn't have overdrive either. First check to make sure the fluid is full, in neutral or park, with the engine running and the trans fluid hot. The fluid should be pink or red colored and should not smell burnt. If is full then when was the last time the fluid and filter were changed? This should be done every 50,000 to 60,000 miles.
If these are both good, sounds like old age and high mileage are starting to take their toll. You can try adding some "Lucas Transmission Treatment". This does work, follow the directions on the bottle and use the whole bottle. If this makes a difference then for sure you are looking at a worn transmission.

Its a early sign of your tranny about to go. A flush wont help so be aware. It looks like Troopers with about 100k miles are prone to this problem.
