SOURCE: Auto transmission not smooth 1st to 2nd

Admitting a lack of familiarity with your car, this is often caused by an improper adjustment of the transition point from one gear (or clutch) to another.
1st is still not disengaged when 2nd is engaging but this is normally an adjustable point.

I've also seen this caused by the use (or adding) of the wrong fluid; the beasts are fussy about that sometimes.

SOURCE: 4L60E Shifts fine in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd but will not shift into OD

The EMC detected and problem so it's in limp mode, As long as it's in limp mode the 4th and OD will not activate. Take care not to burn up the transmission by running it hard while your in the limp mode.
Your going to have to get the truck scanned to clear any codes and why there are DTC codes. Auto Zone scan for free and most auto shops charge $10.00 to $20.00 to scan sine they want the business.
If you want to clear the codes your self you can put the ignition to the run position and pull the ECM (Batt) fuse out for 20 sec and place it back in then start the truck. It may stall but let it, just start it again and this would have cleared all the DTC code history.
The transmission should be running fine unless there is a problem and the service engine light will be on again and you'll be in limp mode still with an updated DTC in the ECM.
Good luck and hope this helps.

I have a 2007 Nissan 350Z that's hard to shift into 1st and 2nd gear when it's cold. Any suggestions


Oil thins as it gets warm, lowers the viscosity, gears then shift better. Check the gearbox oil, try a lower viscosity oil

1990 subaru shifts fine when cold and then when hot will not shift out first gear


check the oil level in the transmission as there may be insufficient / too much oil for correct operation of the transmission . There may also be a leak in a line or plug that was not tightened properly

2002 Durango transmission sluggish when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. I was told that the Transmission needs flushed and new Fluid added


Usually if the trans is acting up new fluid isn't going to change a thing, that's usually a ploy to get you to spend some money, just what I have seen.. Q: does the trans act up more or less when hot or cold, if there is a difference with temp then changing the fluid isn't going to help you, but that's my opinion, I been a dodge tech for 17 years but anything is possible with cars......

My 2004 Camry xle v6 has intermittent transmission hard shift from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd, regardless of hot or cold.


I would look to the motor mounts. This can cause harsh shifts and a deterioration of your flex pipe in your exhaust system.
