this only happens when the warm weather comes around. ok here is what happened the first time this occured. i went on a 20min trip and then i stopped at a gas station filled up and then when i put my car in drive it was just revving like it was in nuetral and it was moving very slow. then i heard a little pop and it went back to normal. then when i got to my destination i backed into a spot then put it in drive to line up and again the same thing happened. it has done this a quite a few times now. also when i do a couple 1/4 mile mile times on my g-timer it happens too. this only happens with warm weather. it did it last summer and now it is doing it again. it never happened in the winter. i was thinking maybe the transmission is getting to hot and i should get a transmission cooler, but i don't know. i only have 66,000 miles. someone help.

have you done the tranny flushes that is recconmended in the owners manual? it sounds like the tranny is going. i am sorry that I can't really help much except i would take it to a tranny shop and have them look at it.

i havent had any tranny flushes done since i got the car. i bought it used with 60,000 miles on it. i guess i will have to bring it in to get looked at.

you know i was just reading thru some old posts and came across this one, and I can relate to this. However my GA is a 99 with 72,000 miles the car seemed to not want to go and i know that the engine was working fine so it had to be the tranny. But what I notice is if you start your vehcle and shift to gear within seconds of turning it on, I think that the tranny line isnt fully pressurized to start shifting gears ( I dont know much about the mechanics of a car but thats what i feels like.) I also notice that if you gently apply pressure to the gas pedal when the tranny seems to be restrictive, that it will slowly allow you resume normal driving operation.

Like I said before, if you wait a few seconds after starting the car before shifting it should be alright.
