Question about Cars & Trucks
The one time I had this problem with an automatic transmission was when water got into the transmission fluid. I had it drained and all new fluid put in and it was fine again. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: not shfiting right
eric sounds like you have a electronic trans mission or computer controled trans.is the check engine light on ?
second it sounds like your trans is in limp in mode ( only has second gear).
the hard shifts is not good news.
somtimes when the controller sets a code that forces limp in it has to be cleared.
dis-connect the battery for a few min. then try it again see if it shifts but be easy on it and make sure fluid level is good.
if it it still messes up CHA CHING hehe i'll fix it fer 1000 bucks

i agree with morroso92 -an aftermarket trans cooler is always a good idea-i had a 1987 buick century purchased with 100K miles installed a decent size tranny cooler , changed the ATF several times at first(to get the fluid fairly clean) and then i used MOBIL 1 ATF and also installed LUBEGUARD (for trannies-red bottle) aloong with changing gasket and filter.the car had the original tranny and it was still perfect when i junked the car at 250K miles. just so you know the MOBIL 1 ATF is about $6.00 per qt. the bottle of LUBEGUARD is about $12.00. many trans rebuilders and mechanics swear by LUBEGUARD. IT ACTUALLY DOES WORK AND CAN HELP TRANNY PROBLEMS LIKE SHUDDERING,SHIFTING PROBLEMS,ETC.i have used it many times.

sounds like a vacuum issue possibly look over all your vacuum lines for dry-rot as well as any broken ones this will cause such an issue as well as many other areas to check could also be a stuck sensor
