Transmission Morning Sickness


Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone. I hope someone has an idea about this. In the morning, when I first pull away, my car will rev higher than usual (like 2500-2600 rpms) before it decides to shift into the next gear. It shifts smoothly, not rough, when it does this, and the rest of the time it shifts fine from a stop. Is my tranny going bad?

It's normal and more noticable in cool and especially cold weather. I forgot the reason ... maybe to ensure that the transmission parts are well lubricated as soon as possible when the fluid is cold.

Did you buy the car recently? It should have been doing this since new.
