A delayed upshift condition may be experienced for about 1/4 mile in cold weather (32 degrees F and below) and is most noticeable after the vehicle has been parked for 8 or more hours. Our technicians tell us the repair involves replacing teflon governor drive seal rings with cast iron seal rings.

    On cold mornings there is a long delay in transmission engegement when I put it in drive. Reverse has a delay also. But, not as long a time span as drive.
