Tranny issue possibly:
I have a 94 Formula A4 i beleieve it's a 4L60E, but when going from park to drive it hesitates, its like it's in neutral, then starts moving, havn't really messed around with automatics too much and this is my 1st automatic besides my 94 cherokee which doesn't do this.
Is this normal? or maybe did someone do something to it? I just bought the car from my buddy because he is having finacial issues however he doesn't know much about the car/whats been done to it.

tranny fluid is good..... what else can i check?

Mine was like that before I got it built. In not saying you need a rebuild, I'm just saying after the build it literally lunges out of park and into gear. Them again, I do have my transmission set for drag mode.

I highly doubt you do. Mine would go into basically neutral once I hit 5,000 rpm and I ended up losing 3rd and 4th gear. You'll know when you need a rebuild, but a delay when shifting into drive I would think is pretty normal.

Most likely a problem with the forward clutches. Either burnt, worn, or the material is flaking off. It could also be a cracked forward piston. 4L60Es are notorious for this.
