I have a '94 gt, all stock with 100k miles on it. It shifts good, no shudder or slips. But when getting on it in 1st, it's really slow to change into second. If I am just cruising the shift from 1st to 2nd is just as fast as the rest of the shifts. But if it's WOT and im pushing it, it takes about 2 seconds (!!) to go from 1st to 2nd, with a slight loss in power while it grabs 2nd. I know the AODE's aren't real snappy, but it seems odd. I've seen videos of auto's chirping into 2nd stock (I am not expecting this with the highway gears it has) but my RPM/power seems to stop/float higher in the rpm before finding 2nd and dropping RPMs and continuing. And it only does it under wide open throttle (I think near 6k rpm, about 37mph) Fluid is good, fresh and red... a sensor maybe, or just a tired old automatic? A new valve body will be coming soon as well.
