This car was bought from it's original owner, but had sat idle for several months.
It ran ok until it had the trans fluid changed and a new fuel filter put in.
It now loses power up hills and seemingly won't change gears after 35 mph.
I've been told it's the transmission, but I would like to know what else to check out before rebuilding the transmission.
Do you
