My Ford Taurus 2001, with 63K is having the intermittent problem of Rough / Hard shifting.
Normally the transmission shifts good, but there are days, when in bangs into each gear, especially while shifting from 1 -> 2 and 2 -> 3, and sometimes the down-shift 3 -> 2 happens with a bang(when coming to stop).
It do this for few days, and gets back to normal shifting, on its own. When it shift rough, it shifts rough all the time, irrespective of the fluid being Cold or Hot.
After few days the problem dis-appears completely, and it shifts normally. Again after a month or two, it ACTS up for a week, and get normal.
I got the codes read for the engine and transmission, there are no codes present, and the check engine and transmission lights NOT ON.
The shop says there is no problem with the sensors and solenoids, and there is something internally wrong. And I believe that if there is some mechanical problem, it will happen all the time, and not intermittently. So, I guess its some electrical problem.
But all the electricals are working fine. The speedo meter doesn't flicker, and the cruze control works fine. All the electricals - radio, power windows etc works fine.
have the same problem?
