Hi,

1) First, when to check level on dip stick...
IE: In park... In Neutral.... Hot... Cold....
So give me a basic instruction.... thanks....

2) What kind of (automatic) Tranny fluid.....

and lastly,

3) The car shifts hard from first to second....
gives a little whiplash.... At slower speeds
not as bad..... but still rough shift.....

4) car doesn't always seem to kick down when
shifting.... not sure what gear....
maybe when in fourth... down to third....

The harsh shifting problems sound like vacuum problems (unmodulated shifting) or modulator. Make sure you have vacuum at the modulator.

Cool thanks guys...
What side of the tranny is the modulator on.....
passenger or driver's......

Today it wouldn't go into 4th gear.......

after putting it in neutral while rolling it went
in... but yeah.... first to second is always a
neck snapper..........
