Q: Q: Shifting problem

asked by on

Hello, my van goes in reverse perfectly but when I try to go in first gear it will go buy very very slowly and it takes a long time to hit second gear. Fluid level is ok. Could it be a clogged filter?

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You may have a bad transmission shift governor in the back of the transmission that is not working correctly or there is another internal fluid pressure leakage that may require the transmission to be rebuilt. Have the governor replaced and transmission serviced to see if it helps first.
