issue is not yet fixed. in fact, i only just decided it to be REALLY an issue. the car was purchased a year ago with 94,000 miles on it. i bought it for my son whom i had expected to obtain his license promptly but that has not happened. the car sat for the most part of 7 mos and i began driving it myself approx 3 mos ago. no trouble at first. 1 month ago, i started to experience delayed shifting but only occasionally. it happens only once and usually right after putting into drive or within a block of movement. i suspected low tran. fluid and checked/added fluid last week. that appeared to fix the issue until today (not particularly COLD or HOT outside). i warmed the car up for about 10 mins prior to leaving, reversed from driveway, put into "D" and moved forward about 15 ft before stopping to look before pulling into traffic, and then tried to go but NADA! today was the worst incident yet. i actually began to wonder if it would ever catch or if this was it and the tranny was out. hasn't happened in over a week but the incidents appear to be increasing in severity. very concerned as i cannot afford repairs of this magnitude. suggestions and advice welcomed
