Hey guys, I'm a newbie hear. I seem to have some tranny problems:
Accelerating from a stand still, it shifts from 1st, to 3rd, skipping 2nd altogether.
And it seems to stay in 3rd and not go into 4th. Overdrive switch is not on (lit up). The other thing I notice too is the "overdrive off" light on the dash will flash on and off. Once I hit the switch the light stays on.
The tranny fluid is on the brown side. I plan on getting the fluid flushed hoping this would remedy the problem
Anyone with advice?

Hmmm, I was thinking maybe 2nd gear had been worn out or something but since it does shift into 2nd when you stick the lever there, I'm not sure anymore. Does it jerk forward from 1st to 3rd or does it shift smoothly?

Does not jerk into 3rd. Once it shifts into 3rd, it bogs, assuming because it misses 2nd gear.

So was this problem ever resolved? I'm having the exact thing happen in my 91. About 5-10% of my takeoffs from the light, it skips 2nd gear. Very annoying and could be potentially dangerous if pulling out into traffic. Have any others had this problem?
