Why does a transmission not shift until the car is fully warm even when the fluid and the solenoids were just changed?

Torque converter or the transmission oil pump getting worn or a valve in the transmission is sticking.

The transmission fluid capacity of a 1974 Chevy Nova is 10 quarts. This includes a large amount of fluid which is stored in the transmission and torque converter which is never fully drained.

When a car accelerates slowly, it could just be that the car is not warmed up fully. Another reason for slow acceleration is a problem with the transmission. It could be low on fluid or need to have the fluid and the screen changed.

Fully drained, you will need 7-8 quarts of ATF+4 fluid
