Two part Q: Repair manual states that a needle should be used to grease front trans-axle fittings? I only found two zirks, one on pass steering control and one on a replacement upper ball 'J'. Trans: Had the broken accumulator spring replaced 5000 miles ago. This repaired the slow, then clunk shift. After repair, the tranny takes a while to wind up before it shifts from 1st to second, and second to third. Is the engine wind up and gradual shift to second normal for this tranny?
