2002 Ford F150 5.4L hard shifting

The transmission has a hard shift going from 2nd to 3rd. Also recently when I attempt to pass and transmission shifts to overdrive it takes longer to shift into gear. Will Lucas transmission fluid help?

    I have a 2007 Kia Spectra with 84,000 miles. No problems at all until the next few days. Hard to put in reverse and now it's getting hard to shift. Could this just be a fluid problem? If so, how do I check the fluid?

Have you ever changed the transmission fluid flush and replaced the transmission filter?

    okay so you have and do keep service up! I would do this::::just hope in sink gas pedal to floor if it stops half way or so it should go right to the floor board if it stops or gets hard in between i would look at transmission kick down cable service it up however if it is electronically censored then you should have a service light on of some sort! and pedal should go to floor effortlessly!!well hope this helps

Transmission shifts hard


You don't give me much information to work with. However, 1st, look at the engine mounts. You may have a broken mount. This will make it feel like the transmission is shifting hard. Other than that, there is only a few things that will cause this. The speed sensor tells the computer when to shift the shift solenoids. It may not be "seeing" a quality signal. If this is the case, the speedometer will be bouncing too. Last idea is that it is skipping a gear. Starts in 1st, should go to 2nd at about 10 MPH. 3rd at 25 to 30 MPH. And, if you have a Overdrive transmission, it should go into overdrive at around 45 to 55 MPH. If it is skipping 2nd, it will engage 3rd at a high engine speed, and will feel like a sudden slam into gear. If this is true, your transmission needs some work. Hope this all helps. Good Luck.

If the Linkage is not damaged, you are going to need to pull the Transmission out.

Hard shift from 1st to 2nd, then 2nd to 3rd.


Dont think they changed it yet but the older chrysler units had a rod that went from the throttle linkage to the transmission (maybe a cable now)...If you lengthen the rod it will increase shift pressure and give you an earlier shift.
