HI, when i take off, my gears jump or jerks from 1st to 2nd rather than changing smoothly, also i can feel it when it changes down from 2nd to 1st, can anyone tell me what this could be and is it expensive and hard to fix?

thanks

I would think a transmission service should fix this. Around $100.

I think its going to need more than just a service. This jerk from 1st to 2nd is classic S5 solenoid problem. Cost is around $300-$350 including service.

It might just need a full flush, new gasket & filter.
I had similar problems with my auto. took it to one mechanic, his prognosis was: its due for a major overhaul $2000-4000 rebuilt. the next shop said it might be the "S5" solenoid $290-$$350 excluding oil, flush, gasket & filter.

the next shop was right on the mark their prognosis was: dirty trans oil "blocking filter" almost a litre low on trans fluid.

got a full flush, new gasket, filter & fresh oil. now don't really need to switch on the shift kit anymore.

its like new

Ive had a similiar experience, 1 place said it just needed a service, another said they couldnt find anything wrong with it and it may just need a service , they said the oil was really black and my mates neighbour who use to be a ford mechanic said straight away its the solenoid, something about flooding.i suppose i could just get a service and if that doesnt work then replace the solenoid

I can't believe it cost you so much. I've had 2 done both my old EA and the EL and both were a little over $300 including service, S5 & rear bush.

Does it do it under light acceleration, or under heavy accelration off the line.

If it does it under light, but not under heavy, could be as simple as a TPS problem and not an expensive gearbox fix, the TPS has ALOT to do with gearbox behaviour.
