Hey everyone,
I wanted to ask something that maybe you guys know of.

1.) The car shifts hard always, everygear all the time.
1-2 break neck. seriously.
2-3 still bad but not as bad as 1-2
3-4 a different kind of bad

1-2 is like getting rear ended. Slam and the car jerks forward
2-3 is like a hard knock
3-4 is like a softer quicker knock

In the morning shifting from p to d or r takes about 2 seconds.

If it is cold, I can put the car in d, then try to drive off and BOOM the car drops into gear as if it wasn't when I put it in D.
continued later....

Sounds like no vacuum to me. Normal operation is to start in second gear unless you floor it.

There is a good thread here on the vacuum modulator adjustments, pressures, etc. Start by checking fluid level, then for vacuum, fix the leaks, the system needs to be tight. If still shifting hard then look into adjusting the pressure.

thread is #15 in the FAQ
