Post need your oppinion please.

I have a "92" Pontiac, It has the six cylinder in it and a automatic 4 speed. When it is in drive it shifts great, but if I pull it down in to 1,2 or 3 it is slipping real bad, like it is in neutral! In reverse it seems to have a jerky feel to it, almost like a standard when the clutch is let out to fast!
What could be the cause of this and do you feel that some one that has no experience on automatics would be able to fix this problem? I do have a lot of experience on motors and standard trans. though.

this is just an idea, but i think i would check the shifter linkage. is your car mechanical or cable-operated? If it is cable, then maybe it needs to be adjusted or something.

if it shifts good while in drive the clutches, seals & bands are ok. it must have something to do with the linkage because you are using the same gears, just that you are doing the shifting manualy.

How long since it has bee serviced? May be a plugged filter. Get a Chilton's and adjust the linkages per their instruction.
