Asked by Nov 01, 2014 at 03:06 PM about the 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme 4 Dr S Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car idles high when first started up.  When it is put into gear it will not move until it has had time to sufficiently warm up. Why is this happening?

Transmission pump worn, trans internal pressure seals going bad, shift solenoids full of varnish. You can try replacing the filter and fluid and add in a quart of TransX and drive as you normally would, might help if your trans has not been serviced properly.

Or... you could just go straight to the transmission shop and have it rebuilt or replaced with a used one because that's where you'll ultimately end up anyway. Old worn out transmissions don't magically heal themselves with additives. Sorry Tennisshoes, it had to be said.

My husband agrees with "munron"
