Thank you for using just answer.

Is this a 2wd or all wheel drive?

How many miles on it and is the check engine light coming on?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
This is a four wheel drive with the stc option (snow option button) and it has 164000 km. The engine light isn't comming on.

Thank you for the reply.

Do you experience any harsh shifting as well or only a noise at this time?

Does this ONLY happen when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
the shifting isn't smooth and it takes a second to change but when I start out with a bit more acceleration it shifts smoother. It only happens between 1st and 2nd the rest of the shifts are okay

Thank you for the reply and clarification.

This sounds like the typical warning signs before the transmission completely fails on these. The 4wd version is not as durable and the mileage you have on it now is about typical life expectancy for this unit. If you have this put on a lift you are going to find that the noise is coming from inside the transmission final drive.
