Card (no weber yet)
3 speed auto
The transmission seems to be slipping when the vehicle is first started.
Does not get all that cold in the FL panhandle...
Engine will race some then the vehicle will slowly take off.
After sereral mile all seems to shift fine,
just when first starting or going around a corner.
I have checked the fluid level
Level is o.k.
Fluid is a red color and does not smell burned.
Thanks for all your help.

Change your fluid - have the thing flushed. And check out the online repair manual - there's a good artical in there about how to properly "tune-up" your governor...
Best thing you could do, is switch out to a manual transmission, but that may be more work than you are interested in doing.

Do I need to change/check for a filter.
If so, where is it?

I'm not 100% positive you even have a filter, but I think that at the very least there is a screen down there, and your pan could probably use a good cleaning of all the debris that has collected down there.
The shifting diffuculty is almost certainly the governor. They get sticky from rough edges, and don't work as they are supposed to. This can be fixed pretty easy by removing the governor, and dressing up the edges of the mechanism with a whetstone or fine grinding wheel.... the online repair manual has a whole article with pictures etc..... I've done it before, and didn't find it that hard - take your time, and do the job right.

I think I will try to pull one first, clean it, then just swap them?
I does not look like too hard a job.
