My '85 Auto Trans is starting to slip when I go from reverse into any forward gear. It doesn't slip if I first go to neutral and give it a little rev, then go into drive. I'm not so knowledgeable with automatics.

So if I back out of a parking spot, and then shift into forward gear, it will slip unless I give it a little rev in neutral first.

Just wondering if there is something I can adjust, or what the best course of action is at this point.
The fluid and filter was changed about 10K miles ago and kept full always. Fluid looks very clean.

Works better and doesn't really slip at all after it is fully warmed up and I've driven a few blocks, so I am sure to let it fully warm up. Then it only slips on the first reverse-forward shift.

Hello there had same issue  ended up custom making some bushings for the linkage  and had local shop do some adjustments was loosing pressure drove it w gage hooked to the tranny and pressure would drop suddenly  complete re build later and no issues   fibers from all the clutches had overtaken every port and filter so it would clog everything and not let fluid pass to the right spots

Yeah, that makes sense. I was hoping to not need to pull the trans and rebuild it of course.
