I have a 94 Pontiac firebird 5.7L, just had the transmission

Customer Question

Hi, I have a 94 Pontiac firebird 5.7L, just had the transmission rebuilt and the gears are set to hard shift. It hard shifts from first to second at 2000rpms fine but 3rd and 4th gear always seem to shift 500 rpms late or sometimes I have to let up off the gas pedal to get it to shift. Changed my maf sensor, but not air filter.. transmission shop rebuilt it again to make sure they didn't do anything wrong and also changed the solenoid again. Thanks for the help.

Did the transmission shop charge you for the second rebuild?

Usually people refer to what MPH the transmission shifts at not the RPM.

Any idea of how the gears are set to shift hard? Does this have a tuner or something?

What solenoid did they change again?

This is the original 4L60-E transmission, is it not?
