What would cause an auto to shift funny when you're just driving normal? When I punch it it shifts smooth and firm most of the time. When I take it easy it tries to get into overdrive way to soon and spins a bit between 2nd and 3rd. All the shifts are firm when they happen though. Someone help me?

Is it the tranny with 1st and second gear in the same slot. If it is, check your fluid first, over full?

Those trannys are electronic issues like that are usually a sensor gone somewhere common ones to act up are the TPS (throttle position sensor), and the transmission speed sensor, and no not the one for the speedo on the dash there is a dedicated speed sensor for the transmission computer.

Best bet is to get it scanned by someone the tranny computer will hold codes like the computer for the injection
