Interesting, the fact that it didn't work, sat and then worked makes it sound like it could just need a new filter, possibly shift solenoids too. Some people will tell you to have it flushed, others will tell you to never flush a cadillac transmission. What does the transmission fluid look like, is it very dark and brown or black? If you are comfortable doing it, I would drop the transmission pan and replace the filter. If not, I suggest taking to a place like AAMCO. Be sure to tell them right up front that you have no intentions of putting a lot of money in the car, or replacing the transmission. If you do this, they will try to work with you rather than just trying to sell you on rebuilding the whole transmission.
