A lot of new cars have a pressure solenoid switch in them that will make car shift hard when they become defective plus also the engine computer controls when your car shifts gears as well. have it hooked up to scanner to check for any default codes .if it is the seloniod it will have a code stored for it a well but also check you transmission fluid to make sure it is not in need of fluid a well. hope this helps thanks 10 zacks

Hyundai tiburon running at high rpms when shifting


hmmm....it would seem as if your trans is having a bit of a hard time shifting so its sort of waiting before it can shift to the next gear (possible the gear system is having a problem shifting due to it sticking to some gears) i'd have to say....a mechanic can take a look to see why its seemingly shifting late at high RPMs to me IMO the trans is just having a hard time shifting with gears wanting to stick together making the whole trans have a hard time shifting

You need to have the trans ECU reset back into its adaptive learning mode. The new trans is shifting harder because the trans ECU still thinks the old one is in the car. The ECU learns your driving habits and compensates clutch wear to provide a smooth consistent shift. Your old trans had a lot of clutch wear so to keep the shift quality it allowed more pressure to the clutch packs. So you now have a trans with less wear on it and the shifts are hard. This is something that removing battery power wont reset. It has to be done with a diagnostic tester. Some trans controllers will begin to compensate on their own over a period of time but I don't yours is one of them.

When u press the gas pedal to hard the transmission shifts really hard


When the peddle is pressed really hard the trans is supposed to increase the shift firmness. The problem may be that the engine has some power problem which makes the trans look like the problem. If the engine is not operating correctly power wise hard shifting will occur.
If the car has a trans shift cable and it is adjusted incorrectly it will also shift hard. If the trans has vacuum modulator that is out of adjustment or going bad it will also shift hard. Many trans shops will test drive it for free so let the trans shop advise you for free and save some time.

It's possible, especially if the used trans sat unused for a while. When you change the filter, make sure that the trans has fresh, proper fluid.

My 928 automatic shifts hard like it as shift kit installed


The transmission shifts (hard or soft) based on the engine vacuum it is receiving. So if you really put your foot down, the engine vacuum will decrease (less vacuum), this signal the trans that you are at high power and the shift shoul dbe quicker and sharper. Conversely, when you are loafing around the trans shifts softer due to a lighter foot (and higher vacuum). If you have a vacuum leak or a disconnected vac line the trans sees every shift as though you are at wide open throttle. You have a vacuum leak somewhere so tha the trans is not receiving any vacuum at idle etc.

My saturn was running fine. Then it would shift very hard


well if it shifts very hard into every gear that means the pressure control solenoid in the trans went bad and it causing the trans to go to max line pressure thats why it shifts so hard,,,it does that so you can still drive it even thou it broken,anyhow the PC solenoid is under the trans pan which is on the TOP of the trans under the battery,,,,not too hard a job to do, the parts are about $100 labor might be about $200,,,easy fix,,could be alot more,,,and if you dont fix it ,it will break other stuff in the trans and cost alot more,,,

1996 chavy van 1500 hard shift


Since all gears shift hard, and the transmission is in correctly (i assume) then it will be a linkage or spring type of problem in the shift mechanism or hook up to the trans. I also assume you have put back all the correct parts.... Last time i r/r a tranny that was like this, i didn't hook up the shift levers right... Rick
