    Delayed turbo 400 shifting


    Took the car out for the first time since last fall, and the car is having some shifting issues. If I start in 1st, and shift to second, it will not upshift. If I then shift to 3rd, it jumps past second into 3rd. If I start in drive, it seems to stay in first for a delayed period until higher speed and then jumps up. There are no leaks and it was shifting perfectly when it was parked. Fluid levels are perfect when hot....and is about 2 years old....maybe 250 miles on this trans fluid. Any ideas? Thanks!

    So I had another issue with my power brakes....there was no vacuum. I found the cause with a cracked grommet attachment from the manifold to the booster. Could that have any effect on the shifting of the transmission?
