my tranny seems to be slow to shift into drive and reverse. anyone else? there is a little hesitation before it engages, if i give it gas before it engages it slams into gear, anyone else seen this?

maybe slaming on the gas before it has gone into gear is just your problem.. Thats almost as bad as a neutral drop, it strips your gears.

i normally dont slam on the gas, but is it normal to take like 2 - 3 seconds to engage reverse from park?

That seems normal because our auto tranny is computer controlled.

yeah, mine takes a while to engage too. It's been like that ever since i bought it with 16kms on the odometer

AFAIK its normal in the 2 second range. Like SC/T said, wait for the shift to complete before applying gas :)

or backing up and right away while still drifting putting it in drive isnt good for it either.

Mine takes about 2 seconds too. But don't slam on the gas and change gears.

Mine used to take like 2-3 seconds to go into reverse. I had it checked out under warranty and it had something to do with the transmission. I can't remember of the top of my head what it was, but they rebulit my transmission.

that-i THINK could just be the fluid, ive heard synthetic helps that. or the actual transmission, mine does that too, takes a few secodns to engage and clunks most of the tiem when it does but my moms GLS alero has the smoothest shifts, their fast and dont clunk at all, you barely feel it. That wouldnt make sense though since i thought that tranny is the 4T60E, same that you GT people have, and my 4 cyl has the 4T40 or 45E and we're describing the same problem. eh just a thought.

No.... we all have 4T45E's... (V6's at least, never paid much attention to the 4 bangers...)
