    I have an 82 Jimmy with a 305 and a 700r4. When it is cold, it upshifts from 1st to 2nd hard and it always downshifts from 2nd to 1st hard wether it is cold or not. The fluid is full but it has some bubbles on the dipstick, is this normal or does my tranny need some help? Thank you for helping me /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    my brother's s-10 4.3L 700r4 is starting to do this, its got 150k on it when its cold it hits hard into 2nd gear, but if you get on the pedal hard and good then it will shift great, til its warm then it will be normal

    Yah i'd check the 1-2 accumulator... That accumulator is supposed to cushion the 1-2 shift and make it softer.

    Don't know about that one but it sounds like the TV cable isn't quite adjusted properly... If it has an upshift flare, and then when you really floor it, it goes away...
    Your getting more TV pressure when you get your foot in it and that dissapears... Might want to double check your TV cable adjustment with a pressure gauge.
