I been driving with this for awhile, but now i'm thinking, is that a big problem, when I'm driving, it can sometime barely respond and the rpm goes up until it shifts, and it'll shift kinda hard to the point where I can feel it, or it'll just start moving and shift kinda hard, I dont feel it during the other gears, is this a big problem and how can I fix it? Thanks

Flush it and change the filter, then let us know how she shifts.

I woulda said filter too, cause I had the same problem, but changing that fixed it good. Another reason my transmission is so bad though is because its an 89+ a340e and I'm 88. Any other problems, like with your speedometer/overdrive/abs?

Mine shifts hard in all gears, but especially from first to second. Got the transmission serviced at Toyota right after I bought it and they said it was just fine. Said I just had higher than average line pressure. Nothing to worry about. So, I got lucky on that. I'd just break down and make Yota check it out. Get a guy in the shop thats not a dick and he will probably go over the whole thing for you. I know the guy that did my tranny checked EVERYTHING out for me.

My buddy actually modified his tranny to do this, saying it would increase tranny life or some craziness. All I know is it seemed as if his car (T-Bird LX 4.6 SOHC) spent little to no time in between gears when shifting. Instead it straight slammed into 2nd/3rd. Enough to chirp the tires in second, w/ an auto, and making little to no power more than stock. This would save the clutch packs, I know, but I can't think of any other longevity advantages in doing this...Of course the Ford AOD tranny in those cars was/is a total POS, so every little bit helps, but hey...it was fun as hell to drive after that!
