Is it slipping? It may be the band's if you got a used transmission. good luck to you.

This is not good. Water can ruin everything. If this was a car that was offered for sale it would be SALVAGE only. The problems sometimes never go away. If the transmission was not serviced after this episode then water may have damaged it. However water may have had nothing to do with it. The clutch packs might have just worn out. So the only way to tell is drop the pan on the transmission and check for water. HOWEVER, it is going to have to be rebuilt anyway. So it is best to take it to a shop.;

Slow shifting when engine is cold

I have the same problem with my 97.... especially shifting from 3rd to O/D... I've had the tranny serviced and flushed.... It still does it until the tranny warms up.... the tranny's in them are temperature picky!!!!! It's the nature of the beast!!! Wait until spring and everything will be good until next winter!!! If you're really concerned with it you can put a "cold front" on it or block half (NO MORE THAN HALF) of the tranny cooler with cardboard thru the winter months
