Default Gearing Down

When my 00 SLE shift down when I boot on it it shift awsome but it jolts the car pretty good. Is that maybe the mounts getting a little weak. Let me know its not bad just different than my 03 SE

Moved from Performance and Brainstorming. This is a mechanical problem.

I'm not sure what some of the differences may be, but the best place to start is to look at the condition (color) and level of your fluid immediately after driving. Is it better or worse with a cold or hot trans?

Check that fluid after driving. Not just the level, but the smell and color. Harsh shifting can sometimes be blamed on suspended friction material from your clutches inside the trans. It may be time to do a fluid/filter change, but let'* see what it looks like first.

I've had my battles with a failing trans. I learned the hard way what to watch for, what to do, and how to get the most out of it until doom finally wins.
