When do trannies start having 2nd gear shift problems?

Why does my car not shift into 2nd gear?

Acceleration is virtually zero. After stopping the car (say at a redlight), starting again it will refuse to shift into 2nd gear. When it finally does, it will make a hard “thunk” sound and the car will surge forward. If the car is stopped and turned off for awhile, everything seems to go back to normal.

What should I do if my transmission shifts hard?

Clean or change this spring and put all the components back together to reassemble the transmission.

Why does my transmission shift hard after replacing the fuel filter?

Can a bad speed sensor affect shift timing?

Harsh or improper shifting. Without a valid speed signal from these sensors, the PCM will not be able to correctly control the shifting of gears within the transmission. This may cause the transmission to shift roughly or more quickly than normal. It’s also common that a problem with these sensors can impact the shift timing,…
