    so when ever i come to a complete stop, the transmission seems to slam into gear a little harder that it should. all the other gears shift smooth aand with no problems. what could this be???:confused:

    Does it shift hard on acceleration from 1st to 2nd? My truck began shifting hard from 1st to 2nd. The CEL came on and it was a P0758 code. (shift solenoid B electrical). After several days it got worse and then wouldn't shift into OD. I took it to a trusted transmission shop and they replaced the solenoid. $129 labor--$190 for solenoid.

    it turned out to be axle wrap. my tranny shifts smoothly through all the gears. so i went and bought helper springs for $37 and it fix it. they just bolt right on
