Question about 2000 Mazda Protege
I have a 2000 Ford Ranger that has had no real problems. The tranny hasn't shifted hard or funny until this happened. Now it will rev fairly high in first gear and ( sometimes) shift hard into second. If I turn the o/d off before leaving the house it seems to drive fine. Read on forums that alot of times it is the vehicle speed sensor ( otherswise known as the ABS sensor) that is located on the rear differential. Had that changed and it is still doing it. Heard it could also be torque converter or any number of things...any ideas?
Abs (ABS)sensor is the anti-brake skid sensor and has nothing too do with the transmission
you are referring to the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) run the fault codes as the TR sensor and the TCM are most likely the faulty sensors

1. some mazdas had a PCM/TCM update to resolve 1st to 2nd shift shock. the only one who can update the is the dealer. maybe covered under 5 year 100,000kms powertrain warranty.
2, have you ever had the transmission fluid replaced? it could be dirty, burnt, etc.
if it was replaced, maybe it was replace with fluid other than M5 fluid. different fluids have different properties (thickness etc) which could cause serious problems if left.
I would recommend taking it to the dealer for the update and a transmission flush (not a drain and fill) using a flush machine.

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.

With any vehicle that has a hydraulic clutch, a worn master cylinder or slave cylinder will give this very symptom. First step is to check the fluid in the resivor. If it is low, you will want to check for fluid bypassing the seals. Be sure to check under the rubber dust cover as fluid can collect there and not be readily visible. Also, if the fluid in the resivor is dark colored, it is an indication of the internal seals going bad and you will need to replace the cylinders.

I have the same problem with my car I think its the torque converter clutch but you should visit a diagonestic machine just to find out
