The transmission control module is adaptable. This is a real common complaint with the A604. You need to take the vehicle to a shop with a scan tool and have the TCM ran through a quick learn adaptive reset procedure. The dying problem is likely a bad crank sensor

Shifting hard from 1st to 2nd


Your transmission is computer controlled. The best way to find out why it is not shifting correctly is to scan your Powertrain Control Module (PCM) for possible fault codes. There are several Technical service bulletins (TSBs) published for your transmission. However, it is really necessary to retrieve fault codes to correctly determine which of these may or may not apply to your particular problem.
One bulletin that stands out in my mind is Technical Service Bulletin Number 07-07-30-024, which addresses hard/delayed 1-2 shifts and involves reconditioning of the valve body. But once again, it also addresses specific fault codes.

When I first start driving the transmission work fine ,then when I slow down it shifts into 2nd. and won't shift up again. So i stop the car , start it again and then it shifts fine again until I slow down...


I was told by a Chrysler tech that it's the shift solenoid located in the trans. pan. There are 4 of them and you have to have it checked to see which one. You don't want to replace all 4. About $80.00 at a dealer! Mine does the same thing. 2004 Concorde lxi.

Whenever I put the Audi A4 in reverse it shifts fine but when i put in in drive it shifts real hard and when I am slowing down at times it downshifts like something hit me.Where do I add trans fluid?


down the dipstick tube!!!(really)DO NOT OVERFILL...
Your audi is fitted with a fuzzy logic gearbox, it will change according to your driving style.TRY THIS,put into 1st and without touching gas pedal, let the car accelerate to top gear,stop Then using onle 1/3rd gas pedal do it again.then using 2/3rds do it again.then only using the minimum pedal req accelerate to max legal limit.(try not to use brake pedal,let the car slow down itself,until you have to)then drive as normal, it will feel like a different car.

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown


It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell

96 taurus shifts out of 1st @3200 then gos to2nd only to gos back


Possible solution:

Too many drivers neglect to change trans fluid or filter until trans is trash.
You might try doing that. Remove the oil pan and install a new filter and clean out the pan gook.
It 's a 25% chance you can drive ok again.
