: 1991 Caddy Brougham - Just started shifting late and hard

03-30-05, 09:22 AM
Just yesterday, my auto tranny started to shift late and hard in all gears, but most noticeable in 1st to 2nd.

Fluid level is good, no unusual odor, no metal filings on the dip stick. I was wondering what components on (or near) the transmission might need adjustment or replacement w/o having to get right into a heavy trans repair... Maybe a shift actuator or vacum device?

One caddy service dept. suggested it might be a partially blocked fuel filter.
Is fuel flow related to transmission shifting performance?

Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
