I now have 25K in my Av and suddenly noticed the tranny kinda delay shifts between 1st and 2nd and in one instance shifted hard between 1st and 2nd.

Did a search - couldn't find anything.

Any other problems or TSBs out there?
I experienced similar feeling. Took it in for tranny service.

solved the problem.

the pan was clear of debri... thank goodness.
Just needed a filter change.

Personal note:

I prefer the pan off tranny service over the power flush kind. I like to get that old plugged filter out of there.
Hey, thanks Irontrain.

Will set up appointment in shop on Friday. Will let eveyone know what and how they did.
