Customer Question

I just got a 04 sentra it shifts hard from 1st to 2nd several people including Lee Miles told me it's in the trans. I went to a reputable yard that deals with motors and trans bought a trans and swapped it out but the problem still exists. What are the chances of 2 trans with same problem the new one is garunted I'm stumped could it be as simple as solenoid pressure hose as you describe once your. Moving it's fine only from 1st to 2nd very hard and fast shift what do you think almost sounds like light.

There is a Drop Resistor over by the air filter air box that I have see cause hard shifting which would act like a transmission. I would check this and see if that is giving you this problem.
See link for image of what it looks like and how to test it.
