What causes an automatic transmission not to shift correctly or slam into the next gear when the outside temp. gets below 35 degrees until the trans. warms up after 1 to 2 miles of driving 2001 Honda?

Have you checked the fluid level? Some transmission dip sticks you can check both cold and hot. If you can check yours...........but the best measurement is when the tranny is hot or up to full temp. The fluid expands when ti gets warm and maybe your tranny is low when it is cold and until the fluid warms up, it has a difficult time trying to shift gears.
