95 GT transmission help

my 95 gt conv, all stock,<50k original miles, stutters/shudders when going from 1st -2nd (automatic transmission), seems to do it more often in the afternoon when temps are up but doesn't do it every time. Oh, had tranny svcd in March just one of many minor repairs (now awaiting new top lift cylinders which will be installed upon arrival). My mechanic wants to rebuild the tranny for $2435.14, he will send it out to a tranny specialist in Apopka, FL. Any suggestions before I pull out the last of my 401K?

Do not rebuild it until the the thing stops working. When it does I would buy more a performance trans for that money.

Re: 95 GT transmission help

Take it to a reputable trans shop. Someone that specializes in transmissions. Sounds more like a shift solenoid, or shift accumulator to me. Doesn't warrant a complete rebuild. And if you want to have it rebuilt for piece of mind, take it to a speed/performance shop and have the "toughen" it up at the same time. I know things are probably a little more expensive in Florida, but he typicall rebuild price around me is $1500 +/- 300

i bought a 700hp rated auto trans from a company in lakeland and i live all the way up here in ohio. it cost less than half of that shipped to my door.

trans depot
727-868-9462

u could buy one, have it shipped to u, and have your mechanic install it. maybe u could go get it, idk how close u r to lakeland.

hope this helps..

Re: 95 GT transmission help

I believe I read something about the torque convertors causing a shudder like that when they don't lockup properly.
Try some Lucas transmission additive before you spend a lot of money on a new transmission.
If that clears it up, then likely all you will need is to replace the torque convertor.

Re: 95 GT transmission help

Got her checked out by a transmission specialist, said its the torque converter that failed (is failing) and his price is about $500 less, so I guess I will get it done before my road trip scheduled for October 1.

Glad you found the problem.
Sounds pretty much like what I read about previously.
