Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera
I have a 1998 cadillac catera the transmission starts off very slow before it shifts into second gear
You need to have it checked out by a mechanic as soon as possible, I drive a 2000 cadillac catera and it began to have the same problems about 4 months ago but last month my sport mode button began to blink which means a transmission problem. So when i had it looked at they said my 3rd gear was almost completely burnt out and it cost $2,000 to fix. The cause was a broken piece of the transmission was failing and it had to be completely rebuilt. Good luck!!

Would start by checking tranny fluid. Let run 10-20 mins. And then check while hot. If low top off. Do not overfill. If that not problem could be serious tranny probs. Lemme know if this helped

The Catera transmission is designed to extend the first gear period, especially in cold weather, in order to heat the transmission fluid as quickly as possible. This is by design and not a fault. It is prudent to flush the transmission every 50,000 miles, and do a flush and filter change every 100,000 miles.
