Please see a transmission service center for this one. Could be low on fluid, causing improper pressures inside the case, or it could be a solenoid.
Or a torque converter, or the shift plates.
This is why you must see a qualified person. Without a check engine code, (you can get it read at most auto parts stores like O'Reilly's) there wont be any diagnosing done over the web. Its a combination of sound and feel to really get a good diag.

Transmission hard shifting between first an second gear only when this happens the tachometer goes erratic


You have a engine RPM sensor that is not working correctly. Computer thinks you have push gas pedal to the floor and is providing that type of shift. It may be the sensor attached to your gas pedal has worn out.

4L60E Transmission wont shift into 2nd or Overdrive


Check the fluid level. You may want to consider having the transmission flushed. (I recommend BG Products flush system.) Properly flushing the trans removes any varnish the may have built up causing erratic behavior.

Speedometer stops displaying then the car runs very erratic... pull over and stop... the problem goes away, continue driving for a while then problem comes back


Your car is equipped with a speed sensor. When this sensor goes out it will cause the vehicle to run erratically and shift up and own at all the incorrect speeds and RPM's. Have your speed sensor checked. I'm sure that is the problem.

Rear end slipping?


Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

i had a customer with a 2004 gmc sierra 2500hd 2wd that stated that the srevice brake system light came on while driving. the transmission would shift hard and erratic plus the speedometer was erratic. the check engine light came on with two codes p0502 and p0503(vehicle speed sensor A low input and vehicle speed sensor A intermittent/erratic. i replaced both vehicle speed sensors mounted on the driver's side of the transmission. both of the speed sensors were the same. test drove the truck after and all issue were solved.

Could a broken speedometer cause the transmission to not shift properly?


Yes if the vehicle speed sensor is bad than the computer can what speed you are going .SO the shifting comes from the throttle position sensor instead and trans shifting will be erratic :)

Cummins Diesel Truck Erratic Speedometer and Shifting


Although you didn't mention it, the speedometer probably bounces also. Replacing the speed sensor on the side of the transmission should solve both your problems. Good luck

Erratic shifting on 2001 f150 pickup


How many miles on it? Do you mean overdrive? Over drive will clunk when shifting in cruise. Mine lasted 212,000 miles but I have heard of them going out after 120,000, depends how you drive. That Traney is good till it starts acting up then you will need a complete overhaul. I got it done for $1800. Do not go to a Ford dealer, they quoted me $3200.
