I would suggest that the cheapest thing to try would be to change the transmission fluid and filter again. Even though you just changed it, it's impossible to get it all out because nearly half is in the torque converter. It sounds promising that the transmission got a lot better after you changed it, but you only diluted the sludge. Try changing it again and see if it gets better. With any luck, perhaps your filter was clogged. Also check for a leaking cooler line, just in case you have lost fluid pressure.

Transmission had to be rebuilt (at 198,*** Miles)after I tried to change and flushed the transmission fluid.The car had been sitting for months before I could get the money that I needed to have it fixed. Transmission rebuilt cost me about $1,180.00,After I had the transmission fixed I never had any problems with the transmission. Yet another problem occurred.. The A/C just quit blowing cold air week after I got the transmission fixed. I didn't bother to have it flush or refill with 13a since I won't be needing the A/C this winter.End ball joint was replaced too.

I live in northern Canada, and we get lots and lots of snow. My 1994 New Yorker is excellent in snow, as long as one takes care to equip it with four good winter tires. The only winter problem is the defroster. For some unknown reason, the windows front and side, are terrible for fogging up, even with the heater working very well at full power. Getting the car warm is no problem. Too warm is often an issue due to the need to defrost the front and side windows. I have used the on board diagnostics, and all is well.

I love this car. The interior is European in feel, the seats are so comfy, and IMO the design is excellent - much better than similar large cars from Ford or GM. After 16 years, everything (except, sadly, the A/C) works very well.

IMO, one of the best designed American large cars - and I am fussy about design...
