Wont shift correctly
My Chevrolet Citation isnt shifting correctly and I
just need some possibilities.
Check for vacuum leaks especially for the modulator, make sure the down shift cable is in good condition, check the fluid color and smell, if it’s dark and smells burnt it may already be too late. You can try servicing it and add a can it TransX to the fluid, might help might not. HTH
If that checks out ok, check your ignition timing. Late transmission shifting can be a symptom of a worn timing chain. Especially if the engine is running hot, boils over when you shut it off, and lacks power. If the ignition timing is retarded (late) that definitely points to a worn timing chain. Hope that helps! Jim
