Harsh 2/3 gear shift of automatic transmission. Started at 35,000 kms. Now have 50,000kms. Replacing Transmission valve body and cleaning computer contacts did not fix issue. According to information 3 % of owners have experience transmission problems at low KMS. My car is typical. Can anyone tell me what the problems was, and how to fix it. It usually happens when the car has been sitting overnight or the first shift after the car was driven for a while and sitting. Changing the valve body for the transmission did not correct the problem, The computer contacts were also cleaned. At 50,000 kms still have the issue. After the car engine and transmission heat up, the tranmission shifts fine in all gears including the 2/3 shift.

Car wouldn't start; diagnosed as low compression by a local mechanic, the car was able to be started (pressure magically came back up?), and I drove it to a mechanic I trust. Their inspection identified a leaking valve cover gasket, a failed oxygen sensor, as well as that the car was overdue for replacement of its spark plugs, timing belt, and oxygen sensors; and that, additionally, thedrive belts were both in very bad shape. All of these (valve cover gasket, oxygen sensors, plugs, and belts) were replaced.

Car is presently in the shop again for gear selector flicker. Dealer is unable to figure out what the problem is. Transmission TCC valve inactive when transmission is started out in 3rd gear but is active once the gearshift is put in drive and back into 3rd gear. Trans TCC valve is supposed to work in both 3rd and 4th all the time. Dealer found 3rd gear cluster indicator light flicker issue caused by intermittent electrical short inside A/T. This caused the TCM, instrument cluster to short out the processors. Ordered AT, TCM and cluster and R&R each part.
