Re: when the engine gets warm the transmission doesn't...
Have you replaced the fluid and filter? sometimes if the filter is clogged all of the fluid will stay on top of it instead of settling back into the pan. so when you run it it stays on top then you shut it off and it will slowly drain back to the bottom so its good for a little while until all the fluid is stuck over the filter again.

it may be a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ). it causes transmission shift issues, bucking,jerking, idle surging, engine cut off, surge while crusing down highway. if this does not solve problem, it may be a sticking valve body in transmission. have a good day !! for an automatic tranny.
one thing ive warned my friends to never do and that is to never have your trans flushed cause you may have new fluids but what about the trans filter its old and iots there for that reason to keep dirt and metal; shavings from the bands so try having your oil and filter in the transmission replaced , pull your trans dip stick and on a white piece of paper put a drop of trans oil that you have in your trans at that very moment it should be redish pink but if its brown and smells really bad then the problem is in the oil and filter . change it before u have to replace the whole trans
Many modern vehicles will delay the shift position to allow rpms to increase, thus warming the engine up faster. As soon as the engine temp reaches the desired level, the transmission shift point resorts to the normal point.
This is an emissions issue, with the idea that a warm engine puts out lower emissions. This is also why when getting an emissions inspection in states that require it, they want the engine warmed up first.
At 24K miles, I would be hesitant to say the transmission fluid and filter need to be changed, but if it seems extremely noticable and objectionable, that would be the step I would take. Cold fluid is more viscuos, harder to push thru a clogged filter than a clean one. However, unless you've been towing a trailer a good bit, your mileage should be low enough that filter should not be an issue.
You have a bad transmission control module (TCM). It is under the
passenger side front floor mat. You can get rebuilt units off Ebay,
whatever you do, don't get a used one! They are all bad. If you know
anybody that does electronic repairs, you can have them replace the big
220 uf capacitor on the PC board in the TCM. It's a two dollar part and
a ten minute job but you have to know what you're doing.
A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.
have u had the trans serviced every 60,000 miles? this would be a fluid and filter change. Dirty trans fluid can cause these kinds of problems, it can also be caused by a sticky shift solenoid (transmission is electronically controlled), do u have a check engine light or ay trouble code's? go to Kragen or Autozone and ask then to run a trouble code test, it's free, record any codes and post them back here.
Four wheel drive vehicles require you to put the transmission in neutral to go into low and to get out of low. That being said, if you still need to shut the engine down completely then your transmission needs an adjustment.
It was a temporary fault that put the car into limp mode (a safeguard operating condition designed to protect the transmission in case of serious failure). Sometimes a transient fault can occur, and the car goes into limp mode just to be sure it's not for real. Shutting off and restarting the car is the usual way to clear the fault and return the car to normal operation - if the problem was real, the car would've stayed in limp mode after restart, or gone into limp once you started driving again. I wouldn't sweat this one, since it went right back to normal operation.
