Well the grandprix comes with a transmission that was poorly built. i've seen it before. i'd check your transmission fluid for qaulity. if its bad the car will do that. in automatics. the trans fluid acts like a clutch to help shift. check the vacuum line into the transmission shift silenoid. and there is a couple of sensors to check on it too. problem here is its really hard to give you a solution without seeing the car itself.

I have a ford focus 2008 sedan automatic. I get a transmission malfunction message.


Diagnostic Procedure Before Repair
Step 1 - Clear all DTC's with a engine scan tool (diagnostic trouble codes.) Visit - Scan PCM
Step 2 - Start the engine and observe the MIL, if it does not illuminate continue to next step (service engine soon or check engine light.)
Step 3 - Drive the vehicle while trying to maintain a constant throttle position as it accelerates up through all four gears. If the transmission is shifting properly, it should be in 4th gear by the time you reach 45 to 50 mph on level ground. Repeat this procedure from a standing start 3 to 5 times. Rescan the PCM for trouble codes, if none appear the problem could have been a onetime occurrence. If a trouble code has returned repair as needed and recheck system. Hope This Helps !!!

DEFINITE LURCH IN 1ST AND 2ND GEAR,


This may apply. ...............................

Carry out the adaptation drive cycle road test:

Note: This process must be carried out in normal mode (not sports mode). On a flat road, the transmission fluid temperature must be above 60° C (140° f) and below 100° C (212° f) (vehicle at normal operating temperature will ensure that the transmission fluid temperature is above 60° C (140° f)).
9. Accelerate from rest with light throttle (do not exceed the upper rev limit in appendix 1). 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 shifts must occur with engine speed between the following limits:.
Note: Do not move the accelerator pedal during shifts.

• 3.0L VIN ALL 1800 - 2000 rpm
• 4.2L N/A Prior VIN M96321 1450 - 1600 rpm
• 4.2L N/A From VIN M963221550 - 1700 rpm

10. Continue to accelerate gently to 50 mph (80 km/h) so that transmission shifts into 5th gear.
11. Go into overrun and let the transmission shift down into 4th gear without braking.
12. Brake gently to a standstill and hold footbrake on for at least 15 seconds.
13. This process should be carried out at least five times.

It sounds like the problem occurs when the transmission changes into second gear. It could be the modulator valve or the clutches in the transmission may have seen their better days. Pull the transmission dip stick out. Look at the color of the fluid. It should be bright pink. If it is brown and has a burnt odor the transmission is most likely in need of being rebuilt.
