someone help.... please reply
Hi all, having a problem with my 2003 cts. My transmission line into the radiator busted off so my mechanic replaced my radiator. Now it seems like when I first start the car and put it in reverse to get out of the driveway then put it back in drive their is really no pickup when i first step on the gas... after that first gear change it does better but it doesnt shift the way it was before, it seems to rev higher now before shifting. My mechanic said it would fix itself but its been two weeks now and 200 miles later....also a few days after the new radiator was installed the power steering reservoir overflowed through the cap.. please give me some advice. Thanks

To me it sounds like its either low on ATF or the transmission sustained damage before. Either way stop driving it if isn't damaged yet. Find a way to get it up level and pull the fill plug on the side of the transmission. If its full there should be a very slow drip/stream of fluid when the plug is removed.

Which side of the trans is it?
