AW4 transmission - late shifts when cold
When my AW4 is cold, it takes anything from five to ten seconds to find the gear when going from P to R (which is always my first gearshift when starting in the morning). It also suffers from late shifting from 1 to 2 while cold, and I typically have to lift off the throttle before it will shift (sometimes I have to do this two or three times before I get the first 1-2 shift). Once it's warmed up, everything's fine.
Just to be clear, the trans fluid is recent (I drained and refilled 5 times over a couple of weeks so hopefully there is no old fluid left) and the TV cable is correctly adjusted. I'm assuming that it's just a case of the trans being old, tired and in need of a rebuild, but I thought I'd ask just in case anyone can suggest any cheaper possibilities for a fix, such as solenoids or whatever.
