Default Transmission Noises

This has been going since I got the truck. When I am starting to go from a stop, even at low throttle, the shift from 1-2 is pretty firm. I don't have anyother vehicles with the same type of transmission so I can't compare but it does catch me off gaurd at times. And when coming to a stop the transmission will shift out of gear or something, but it makes a smacking sound. Kinda like smacking a two wrenches together is the only way I can describe it. Is this normal or do I have a problem?

98redbull2 will become famous soon enough

I know what your talking about, mine does it only under certain conditions like say im slowing down then i decide to hit the gas and the transmission downshifts and then i decide to stop again the transmission will stay in that gear, and once i come down to about 5 mph it will shift hard and violently like two wrenches smacking like u said. and its allmost like the transmission is getting confused? is that what its like with yours?
