The transmission seems to slip just a little in first but works good in 2nd, 3rd, and over drive. Reverse work well also. Does the transmission have any adjustments to help the slipping in first or / band adjhustments? If I need the transmission fixed what could it cost me?

Thanks
Steve

Does it slip in reverse? The clutch pack for first gear is also used for reverse.

Let me know.

I would have trans pressure tested. The same clutch pack works low and reverse. If the pressure is low, it may not be fully engaging 1st gear. Also, make sure the trans fluid is full and clean.
