Yes, exactly.Bryanccfshr said:Are you saying that when you put it in gear that it is not moving right away? ZThen you have to rev it up to get the transmission to engage?
I have replaced the tranny fluid twice (in 30K, then again in 90 K). Both times I took down the pan, cleaned it and the screen. No unusual sign of metal filings. I check the fluid every week its full, red and smells like tranny fluid and not burned.Bryanccfshr said:If so Check your transmission fluid level and condition. It sounds like you have pressure drop in your tranny causing the delayed engagement. It could be due to low fluid or varnish and debris uild up in the valve body. What is the service history for the trannsmision?

Georgia. Its not freezing.Bryanccfshr said:What are your climate conditions (Are you in a cold climate overcooled situation? this would be an explanation as well).
The obvious answer would be the fluid level..The not so obvious could be a partially blocked passage in the valve body..How long do you let it run before trying to go??AR10fan said:Right after I start my Taco in the morning I have to rev it up to 1500 RPM just to make it to start moving. What could be the cause of this? Appreciate any help.
When You take the pan down see if there is any tacky varnish. Varnish will make things sticky and not operate as well. There are some gentle products available if you have varnish build up. Varnish can result from the fluid getting hot or as a normal aging of a component.AR10fan said:Yes, exactly.

If its the valve body, I'll take down the pan again this weekend and look.
