starting to slip a little when cold

Hey guys,

I'm noticing a little slipping when the car is cold. It is most notable when I am going down a slight incline in my apartment.

What does this sound like to you? I bought the car last April and haven't changed the fluid yet because I plan on changing out the TC and fixing the 1 - 2 accum. I probably would have fixed it by now if I had a garage

Have you checked the fluid level?

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Yep! She's right where it's supposed to be on the dipstick. This little slip only happens when car is cold. I really hope it's not something impending. Other than that, and aside from the turbulent, violent, TC shudder, the tranny shfts fine as it should and goes through all the gears just fine.
