transmission on 1974 torino sport
I can shift manually but iit won't shift automatically unless its warmed up for about 20 minutes...any ideas?
The fluid needs to be warms up for a little bit, so that fluid circulated to gears properly for easy gear shifting and also fluid must be in proper level and in the recommended type. Clogging of oil vents and fluid pump is another reason for the gear shift solenoid not to work. Check the condition of the transmission fluid if low or contaminated; change the oil and filter if necessary.
