2005 Mazda 3 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 46000 miles
After a Speed Sensor check engine code came on, car would hard shift from a halt at a light. The gear indicator would show 3rd gear, and stay even after stopping. When you stepped on gas it would hard shift to first. Other than that, normal operation. I had the code checked and it was a Speed Sensor (P1075 I believe). I had the Tranny flushed, and had a garage put a new speed sensor in. Now it is fine except when shifted from Park (or reverse) to first gear, the gear indicator changes immediately (and sometimes will switch to second gear) and you get about a 4 second delay, then you feel it shift hard to first. If you give it some gas before it switches, it will speed up the switch to first, but shift even harder.
have the same problem?
