Transmission does shift a bit harsh copared to my '98 T&C.
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
When taking off the transmission will slip, have not not been able to have it check but I have it scheduled it for meet thurday
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.
