Are the harsh shifts when going directly from Drive to Reverse (or vice versa)? Or is the truck idling for some time in Park or Neutral, and then getting shifted into gear?
The harsh shifts only occur once the transmission warms up and it's always into forward or into reverse from either neutral or from park. The engine rpm is normal and doesn't change. It's almost like the trans. pressure doesn't drop when it's signals to but the dealer changed the pressure transducer but nothing changed (maybe the new transducer is faulty?)
