Default What is normal Shifting?

I was just wandering what is normal shifting for the 4T60-E trans. The reason I am asking is when mine shift at low speeds you can feel a little thump when it goes into the next gear. It shifts into gear fine, you can feel it shift. When I am going over 55 you can't feel it shift. My dads said this is how most transmissions are. I can't remember what my 1985 grand am shifted like, and I owned chryslers the past 3 years and they shifted like the trans was going to fall out. I am not used to a GM trans so I just would like to know if this is normal. I think it is I just want to make sure.

mine kinda does the same type of thing. like if you pull out real slow and maybe take it to 2500 or so mine will kinda i dont know how to describe it...its like it wanders around a while before shifting.but like if you romp on it it shifts real crisp.

It will seem different from your 85. Your 85 was probably all hydroli shifting. The 94 is partial hydrolic and partial electronic. The newer cars are all electronic.

Yeah it feels like a light kick I guess when it reaches the next gear going about at 2000 to 2500 RPM. I think thats normal but I am not sure. Like I said my last two vehicles where chrysler products and I am sure you all hear of thier trannys (Junk). So I dont want to base any of my opinions on those. I know my 85 is different trans. I can't even remember what it shifted like. All I know is I beat the living hell out of that grand am every day and that trans never slipped once. Best trans ever made in my opinion. No as far as my 4T60-E I haven't had this car long enough to know how good these trannys are. This one shifts good and all(as far as I know because I am not 100% sure what normal is for these). It shifts better than both my chryslers ever did thats for sure!
