I had similar problem, suprisingly enough it was just low on tranny fluid, but the gentlemen at napa sold me on a tranny filter/gasket, was cheap and easy to put in, and havent had any complaints...

Why does my car jerk really bad when shifting from park to drive? sometimes while im driving it also does the same thing

Transaxle is most likely worn out & due to
be rebuilt

The hard shifting could be an electrical control problem

When you drive any vehicle, even 10 miles ,with any trans
problems, you basically ruin it & do so quickly

What happens is no one changes the fluid every 3 years

It breaks down from the heat & so goes the trans

Then thinking a fluid change will help & it won't do a thing
after years of neglect,the fluid is changed & nothing gets better
& sometimes the trans starts to slip.

What you need to do is have a trans or repair shop check for codes
& road test with you along & driving, to explain the issues

Not changing the fluid causes microscopic particles that normally
occur in side a trans as it wears the clutch material & bushings, to
become lodged in the solenoids

Finding the bad solenoid & even getting to them on a transaxle
verse a rear drive vehicle, is a problem & since your driving it
with the slamming & such from delayed shifts ,your pretty much done.

2004 vehicle is 11 years old & about 150,000 miles

Pull it & rebuild it or install a reman

If it were a rear drive such as my 2004 lincoln ,I would say
pull the pan & change the solenoid pack,not so on yours

99 isuzu rodeo auto transmission making loud noise when shifting

It wil require that your trans is rebuilt or replaced
with a factory built or reman

If you change your fluid every 3 years you avoid
most trans problems

After 12 years they are pretty much worn out anyway

Hard shiftting transmission

On this van with this problem you should have it serviced by a flush tool. You can also get BG Trans additive to help this. I would say if you can drop the pan yourself do it change the filter add fluid and the BG additive. If you feel real good about your skills takr the upper trans line off the radiator drop it into a bucket add a funnel to you dipstick tube start the van and pour in the fluid at the same rate it comes out into the bucket. Do this untill you run 12 quarts through. Then stop the van reinstall the trans line. check the fluid level. If ok then install the BG trans additive. Google and enter your zip code that will tell you the shops where you can buy the chemical.

1998 Chrysler Sebring JXI V6 2.5L Transmission Problem

most likely a valve body or a shift solenoid issue, but at the very least the trans pan and valve must come out and or be replaced, those 2 parts are fairly expensive, but don't know how much and don't wish to mislead you, have the shop look at it, u can always decline the repair.
