My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If this is an issue with how smooth the gears shift this can be a fault with the pressure control/regulating solenoid in the transmission or a fault with the transmission valve body itself.I have seen both cause this type of fault here before needing replaced.This will need to be checked into further to pinpoint and repair the cause here.This is best done first by having the fault codes checked to see what codes are set and then from there diagnosed and repaired further.This may require a dealer or transmission repair facility to test this here to pinpoint and repair the cause.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
