This transmission shifts fine when first starting. After warm-up, it stays in first gear too long and jerks hard when shifting into second. After driving around town for most of the PM, the overdrive light came on and it seemed to stay in second gear. Since then, it has been working fine on short drives, but still jerks when shifting into second afer warm-up. Any ideas?

The valve body gaskets have a reputatin of blowing out. There use to be an updated gasket with the separator plate. Then It use to be only available with the valve body. Then there use to be a service kit that came with a new plate and gaskets as well as a valve kit to put in the valve body. I'm not sure how it is available now, but I'll bet that's your problem.
