I have a 01 f250 superduty with a 7.3 1st to 2nd upshift shifts way to late and very harsh, if I let up off the peddle it will shift ok. The rest of the shift are normal This just has just started doing this. could this be a solenoid. Fluid level is good no leaks, About 120,000 on the clock.

check fluid, swaped relays, check fuses
Hello Hotlink ,
Thanks for visiting us Technicians here at Just Answer.
If this were a solenoid issue you would be getting a flashing OD light telling you there is a electrical fault which has stored a code. This is going to be a 1-2 accumulator valve with a broken spring or binding valve or the more likely source being the intermediate clutch not holding well from slippage due to friction plate fatigue or a piston seal leaking.
So i should be able to pull the valve body for the accumulator spring if thats the case. Or remove the whole thing?
You can remove the pan and filter and then the accumulator body to inspecta dn see if its the accumulator at fault or not.
