Most of the time when the automatic transmission shifts from 1st to 2nd gear the shift causes a "bump", like a little bronco kicking. The engine seems to be okay for acceleration, the bump only slightly slows for the moment it shifts. 1-2 out of 10 shifts there is either no bump (a smooth shift) or a small bump. Sometimes whe you give it more throttle, then it doesn't bump or doesn't bump so harshly. Some mornings when the engine is cold, the first 1-3 shifts from 1st to 2nd do not bump/kick, then once the car warms up, bumps on most 1st to 2nd gear shifts. The other gears are fine. The engine runs well.
