After a complete rebuild which has now been done twice, auto shifting from 1st to 2nd when the car is warm, the car will jerk like its between 1st and 2nd. It will finally get to 2nd. So when Iam in traffic its really bad. Around town it works fine. So if I put my foot on the gas it will shift ok. But driving slow it will jerk then finally get to 2nd. Its worse going up hill. New solenoid as well.

Hi, sorry no i have not found anything other then what we spoke about about the accumulator and spring and also the kick down out of adjustment, there can also be problems with the valve body. Let me let another expert see if he has any thoughts about this problem and continue helping you. Do not answer back to me this will prevent locking the question back to me. Thank you .
