The problem of the bump is not the trans.....remove the driveshaft...seperate the slip joint....clean out old grease in there and replace grease and re assemble with a new clamp or heavy zip tie.
ford makes a nice teflon grease.....i have done this repair dozenz of times when i worked at an isuzu dealer.
good luck

2002 izuzu axiom w / 4L30-E transmission wont go into 4th gear downshifts to any gear at its own by itself

The place to start would be to pull diagnostic codes.If I was going to guess i would say a bad output speed sensor.Almost any trans code stored will inhibit fourth gear so guessing is tough.Good luck.
