The transmission pressure control solenoid may fail causing erratic shifting. Our technicians tell us that partial dis-assembly of the transmission is necessary to replace a failed pressure control solenoid.

    Erratic shifting into 2nd gear particularly when first taking off after overnight, or after work. Once it has shifted seems to work ok for the rest of the trip. Progressively getting worse.

    Does not do the long hard shifts when cold, only when warm. The problem started after my mom moved back to NJ from FL. I drove the car hundreds of highway miles in Florida, no problems. I got the car recently and the long hard shifting started occurring. I drove the car a lot during 2012, as my mom was sick. I drove both highway and local streets. Didn't have the problem until I started driving the car and noticed the problem mostly happens on hard left/right shifts. My transmission guy (Lee Myles owner, 30+ years) thinks that the accumulator should be closed off and that may solve it.

    Sometimes It Is Just Fine , Others At Random Times It Will Make A Wineing Noise Then Start Hitting Gears Real Hard , I Stoped TO Check The Fluid To Find It Is Full Of Bubbles Reading High On The Stick, Leave It Sit For 30 Or So Min. And It Works Great Again , Don't Trust To Go Far With It , But This Happens Over A Period Of 1 Year About 7 Or 8 Times . Is It Getting Air In THe Fluid? Roger
