CAR ACTING UP

1996 Chevrolet Lumina • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 95,862 miles

In the morning when I get in my car it runs fine it goes into gear like it is brand new. But when I run it for a while and get to normal operating tempthe transmision wants to skip a gear or it acts like a manual trans when you try and stop but sometimes it wont. The problem happens randomly any Idea what it could be?

Maybe the torque converter isn't unlocking, when you come to a stop? Intermittent issues can be hard to track. You have to test when problem is ongoing.
