    How cold is cold?
    Cars will make the trans stay in lower gear to force higher RPM to warm up the engine faster.

    Maybe it's time to trade the car in while still running. Replacing the transmission & torque converter would be half the car value. Danny

    This is perfectly normal. When the car is cold, it'll delay the shifts and not lock up the torque converter. It's an attempt to warm up the engine and transmission faster so your heater will work and gas gauge will drop slower

    ECM flash, tranny flush, and repaired left motor mount that I snapped when I toasted the V8 Challenger (Dodge) last month, fixed my problem. Shifts perfectly. Hope it stays this way.

    Re: Transmission skipping.

    I had a similar problem with my old ford explorer. Dealer wanted to rebuild the transmission, and felt that was to much for the problem. Did some research and ended up dropping the pan and switched two transmission control solenoids for the gear I was having the slippage. Put it back together and drove it. Well guess what. I slipped in another gear. Bought a new transmission solenoid and replaced bad one. And 4 years later transmission runs as good as it was new. Spent about 100 between the solenoid and fluid over 2500 to re build it.
