I assume you have check the transmission level?
i would add a can of trans tune made by seafoam. this will clean up a sticky valvebody that could cause this problem.
good luck

Check your transmission sensors with a network diagnostics. These are often to go bad, they also play a big role when it comes to shifting properly.

97 aerostar transmisson problem


I had trouble with what seemed like a transmission on my ford van. Was told by a master mechanic to disconnect the NEGATIVE battery cable for 5 minutes to reset computer. I did this, it worked & never had another problem with it. Maybe it will work in your situation. Doesn't cost anything to try!:)

the trans receives a signal from a censer that tells it you have applied the break, which allows it to shift. do your break lights turn on when you push on the break?

Transmisson is shifting hard in and out of second gear


I had a 2001 Chevy Blazer that would doing the same thing when the check engine light would be on. If you give it very little gas until it shifts into second, it does not shif as hard, right? Then you can accelerate as quickly as you want, but if you hammer it from a stop it jolts really hard.

Our local shop told us it was the valve body. They wanted $900 to fix it!!! They told us "Baby it all you what, but its only a matter of time. If you don't get it fixed soon, it will cause total transmission failure". We traded it in.

Shifts hard from 1st to second gear and second to third.


it could be your fuel regulator located on the top of the right side of the engine a c clip holds it on and it has an 1/8 line runing to the top it tends to set off alot of sensors its about 68 dollars

Slight miss in engine, hard shift from 1st to 2nd long 2nd gear


Check both O2 sensor(s) and catalytic coverter.. P0420 means catalyst below threshold. Also check the sensor at the transmission and solenoid.
