SOURCE: 1997 Mazda protege transmission, Hard shifting from 1st gear

I would try a flush. If its set up like my 96, and it likely is, changing the trasmission gasket and filter will be difficult. Mine has a medal plug on the bottom and takes an allen wrench, and possibly a breaker bar. If you take out this plug, drain, flush then refill via the dipstick tube and a funnel, it may help. You may need to do this a couple of times due to fluid still in the torque converter, pan, etc.
Lucas is good stuff, I would add it again when I was done. The tranny fluid should be pink, mine looked like used oil black before I flushed it.
Also, when adding the new fluid, shift slowly up and down through all of the gears to lube well and check your fluid levels after 100 miles or so, as sometimes a bubble will form and make it look full....then not after it pops.

SOURCE: 2000 Discover TD5 Auto harsh vibration under power at 2000 -2500

The "lift off and it goes away" is the clue I feel. This eliminates engine out of balance issues and points squarely to fueling issues. I would say try a compression test (always a good first start before you try much else) but with plenty of power and no vibration except in the range, probably not a compression issue. So, what's left? Fuel or air is the answer. Check air inlet path is from air filter to turbo and (more importantly) from turbo to intake manifold. Check wastegate on turbo is OK - disconnect the wastegate (it's bolted on to the turbo) hose, then **** on the wastegate hose, you should feel resistance. If not wastegate aneroid has perforated. At this point, I suggest taking it to a LR dealer and get them to pull all the engine codes. If all OK, next step is injectors. It's a common rail diesel and removal is a bit tricky, but if you pull them out, you will often be able to see a single injector with all the carbon deposits around it. If all injectors look the same, suggest that at this point you need to take them to a diesel specialist for testing and calibrating. This process usually cures 70% of diesel misfire problems. The other 30% really requires specialist knowledge of your vehicle's engine.

SOURCE: Harsh grinding noise while in gear and car won't drive!

Had the exact same thing in my 93 and it was the CV Axles - they have a C clip that hold them in place - sometimes the C clip and fail; sometimes you simply have to replace the CV Axles - much cheaper then a tranny; a good suspension shop should be able to diagnos w/o it costing you an arm and a leg.

Car won't up shift or down shift at hot temperature


your tranny shifts according to pressure the transmission control unit regulates the pressure to provide smooth shifts you need to take the car to a good tranny shop that has a scanner that can check the shift points

Shifts into gear extreemly hard


Often the fluid type can do that. If you just had the fluid changed recently, it's likely that the wrong fluid was used (they all have different friction coefficients) If I remember correctly Chrysler makes an additive that will help with harsh shifting as well.
If not a fluid problem, then likely you have a pressure control problem inside the unit that would need to be checked by a shop using gauges. (could be as simple as a "kick-down"cable adjustment to correct)

Harsh or improper 1-2 upshift


Have you had your throttle position sensor checked out? It'll cause a harsh and/or delayed shift from first to second. Second thing to check out is your PCM, as it controls the shifting of your transmission.
