issues shifting from 2nd to 3rd, rpm excell to 4000 before shifting
When excellerating it surges each gear 1 2 &3 as long as you let off on gas peddle just before each gear it will shift and drive fine.
When I come to a stop my van hesitates to downshift and when I go to accelerate it hesitates to shift up in gear. My check engine light recently came on so I had it diagnosed and what came up was the shifter selenoid...at least thats covered under my warranty
