How many miles on the vehicle? When was the last time the tranny saw servicing? i.e. flush, filter & fluid change?

Hi mike,, the vehicle has just over 155, 000 miles, trans. was seviced recently, fuild color and inside pan looked good. correction on yr, its a 93, dont know if that will make a difference.also note, the engine does not race out as though trans is slipping, it just lacks the take off power when cold

Berch,

Just to clarify the lack of 'take off power'. When you say the throttle is 'wide open and it will hardly move', does the engine rpm's increase and rev fine but the car barely goes when in gear, or does it seem that the engine bogs under full acceleration until it warms up?

Just trying to isolate if we should be looking at tranny, engine or possibly catalytic converter.
