Car seems to be having a hard time getting out of first gear and is really sluggish until it gets into second. Not very responsive off the line. The power band in second gear is huge. Is this just how this car should drive? Bone stock 4.6 lx. Possible issues? Transmission?

Ryan - I've heard mixed reviews, mostly bad, on transmission fluid flushes. But dropping the pan, replacing the filter, and putting new fluid in it is good. Highly recommend putting new transmission fluid (MERCON V) and filter on the top of your to-do list for your LX. Do a quick search on this site, recent transmission fluid and the right transmission fluid is instrumental to the life and performance of your transmission. - Jim

Nope, I've heard mixed things on changing transmission fluid
Do it. Full drain and refill with real Mercon V. Nothing fake, nothing "compatible".

Your transmission fluid is old and worn out.
