Trans problem off the line
I bought my first T-Bird (94' 3.8 LX) about two weeks ago. I haven't had a time to drive this baby yet (due to insurance) but I do start the car up every two days or so and just drive it around the block to make sure I don't collect any water.
Anyway, I been having this problem (I think) with the trans. When I start the car and put the trans in the gear, I can feel the gear engage. But when I press the gas pedal (both on foward and reverse), I have this momentary lag, then car start to go. This momentary lag is anywhere between half to a full second. Now, I just bought this car, so I do not know what the condition of the trans, or what modification was done to this trans.
Can you guys tell me if this is normal for all 3.8, or I need to replace something, or Am I due for an overhaul?
Thanks for all your help.
