1994 Oldsmobile Achieva 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 189000 miles
I'm concerned because I just bought this car under the impression that it needed the transmission flushed and filter replaced. The trans fluid in it seems to be brand new though, and I was told on older cars that it isn't a good idea to flush them, anyway. Is it possible that if I replaced all of the vacuum hoses that it would fix the problem? When its cold it won't start out in D, I have to start in 2nd, then work it up & its fine. When it warms up it seems fine and it shifts pretty smooth when I take it on the freeway. How Do I know if the tranny is going out?
