HOW TO MANAGE TRANSMISSION ISSUE? (AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION)

1997 Dodge Caravan • 25,000 miles

Transmission does not shift smoothly and whines. It almost seems as if something is holding the transmission back from shifting gears before it finally does. 1st to 2nd is extremely sluggish. Sometimes heading up hills from a stop requires manual shift into "2" (Dashboard displays P, R, N, D, 2, 1). On occasion shifts "hard"

Could be a shifting solenoid hanging up/valve body-etc. Bring it in and have it pressure tested to find out more what's going on to a transmission specialty shop-
