My car shifts normal on accelatration, in fact great. But if I slow down and it down shifts a couple of gear (but I dont stop). Then accelarate it up shifts VERY hard. Accelaration to cruse speed is normal and down shifting to a stop is normal. I changed the filter and fluid 2k miles ago with no change.
Do you
have the same problem?

Has the check engine light ever come on? Have you checked for trans trouble codes?

I have not checked for trans codes. The check engine light has not come on. It has been doing this for about a year, I have been just compensating for it. Thanks

It could be the result of a few things. I would check for codes first. Otherwise, it becomes a guessing game.

I checked for codes with a reader and there were none. I drove it for 45 minutes and still no codes. Any thoughts?

It sounds like the governor or an issue in the valve body.
