Is the trouble code for your 2-4 shift soliniod?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no, its the pressure control solenoid so the line pressure is full on all the time from my limited understanding. When you put the car in gear from park, it clunks and then shifts very hard from 1st to 2nd. After that the tranny shifts normal.
Expert:  M.Martinez replied 8 years ago.
It sounds like an issue with your governer, which handles both shift situations. I would reccomend a full diagnostic (about 100-130 dollars, but will be waived if you choose to do the repair with the mechanic in most situations). A govenor or preasure solinoid repair would cost around 300-450 total, and i would reccomend that the job be done professionally, due to the difficulty and environmetal concerns.
