My baby has 232,000 miles on it and has been great. A few months ago, it got the "morning sickness" where it would have to idle and warm up before pulling in either forward or reverse. Once going, it would be fine in all gears. The time for warm up would vary from none at all in summer to about 25 seconds on cold mornings. A few weeks later, it would go into gear right away. The problem was that it didn't seem to be first gear. It seemed to start in second and at about the right speed go into third and od. A few more weeks later while getting on the interstate it shifted into od but would drop back to third and back and forth.
The fluid level and color looks good. It was recently scanned with no transmission codes showing.
The engine is in great shape. Are these symptoms familiar to anyone? $1400 rebuild, junk it or miracle?
