Harsh downshift into second gear when decelerating. Is there a software upgrade or would a transmission flush help?


a transmission flush may help, but try this first,without touching the gas,put the car in drive and let it get to top speed(about 30/35mph)STOP, then use 1/3rd gas pedal(do not move your foot)and let it accelerate to about 60/70mph,STOP....then,if safe,floor the gas pedal to about 60/70 mphSTOP.then drive as normal.
the gearbox is computer controlled and if you use kickdown a lot or you change gears yourself then it will be harsh,try only using 1/3rd of the gas pedal(boring)BUT you will see a massive increase in gas mileage/comfort....also check fluid level every 2k.

Suzuki vitara kick down cable


From memory, the tranmission pan will have to be removed. This is messy, and care has to be taken to avoid contamination entering the trans. The cable has probably rusted from off-road use in water and now gear changes are very harsh and sudden.

How can i improve the ride (suspension) on the ford trekker


Fit softer shock absorbers if you want a softer ride, or if it rolls around too much, have a tortion bar fitted.
Changing springs to a performance type will also affect things, but talk to the manufacturers before selection.
Fitting different tyres will also affect handling and ride.

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.

(!) A Light like that went off and my steering well got stuck!?


hello this the indicator for a transmision fault or problem /the pulling motion you felt could be a harsh shift from the transmision when you were coming to a stop . if the light is on the vehicle should feel slow when driving off because when this light is on the transmision will go in to felsafe mode and will actualy shift its self to 4 gear to give you a high gear for highway use . you should take the vehicle to a certified bmw shop or mecanic to have it check out , dont used it in fellsafe mode this could damage the transmision internaly and that will become a $ problem ,.

96 Ford Contour CD4E Auto Trans.


The item referred to needing adjustment in the previous reply is called the MLP (manual lever position sensor). It tells the computer electronically that the car is in P, R, N, D, 2,1 (depending on the gear selector) It also allows the car to only be started in P and N for safety.
If it is out of adjustment, the sensor is misaligned with it's reference point on the gear selector rod, which goes into the trans case and pushes/pulls a rod that moves the selector piston/valve. The valve will be in the right place but the computer will say other wise and it controls the shifting with the solenoids.
SOURCE INFO:
{MLP transaxle function: determion desired gear and electronic pressure control (EPC) pressure:
Symptoms: Harsh engagements and firm shift feel, engine may not crank, may downshift to a lower gear, 2nd or 3rd gear operation, transaxle not inicating the proper gear, no 4th gear operation. no manual first gear.}
Another point of interest is the EPC (electronic pressure control)solenoid inside the black side cover.
Failed OFF-maximum EPC pressure, harsh engagements and harsh shifts.

Another possible issue may just worn out clutches if the unit has high mileage or maybe verify fluid level and recent change of fluid. The filter is inside unit and trans has to be removed to change, some Hondas are like this too.
