I have an '86 Cadillac DeVille 4.1 V8, Auto trans. 160,000 miles. Car has been well taken care f and runs and drives well, other than it idles rough in gear when hot, which I believe may be a result of an over due tune-up. My problem started when I attempted to pass another vehicle. Car seemed to over-rev, with little passing power. Now, every time the car shifts from 1st to 2nd gear, it shift VERY hard. If I time it right, and let off the gas a bit at the shift point, let it shift, then re-accelerate, I can sometimes eliminate the hard shift. All other gears shift fine. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
