Irelands child Has the valve body been modified? Are all of the check balls, springs and spools back in correctly? Is it the correct valve body - C4/5 look much the same but aren't. Also, the 4 and 6 cylinder versions plus the Pinto version don't necessarily have the same valve body as the V8 version and that thin plate directing flow needs to be modified correctly if the tranny has a shift kit installed. Then - is the front pump(and the only one)cracked or heavily worn? Next and the easiest to check - the modulator needs to be connected to a full vacuum source (below the throttle plates) not the ported vacuum (above the throttle plates). Also, make sure the tubing to the modulator is in good shape, no leaks. There is an elbow at the modulator itself that likes to crack every few years or the steel tubing rusts.

Hi Rise
C4 Transmission

I have had this trans into a shop a few times and they dont seem to be able to solve the problem.
When its cold it will shift fron 1st to second just fine. But will not shift from 2nd to 3rd until its been driven a few miles and the tranny get up to temp.
From there on it shifts fine, with no problems. The mod valve has been replaced and there are no vac leaks. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.
