Hi everyone- I know that this is a pretty common problem, but I can’t seem to find any past posts with exactly the same issue. My 2004 V8 has the occasional hard shifts, but nothing major. Yesterday I put the car in to reverse to back out of my driveway and the car didn’t want to go into drive. I tried all gears and had no luck until I put it into drive and revved higher on the engine. Then it shifted into gear. I drove it to my destination and got hard shifts repeatedly between 1-2 and 2-3. I then parked it for a few hours. When I got into it later the same thing happened - didn’t want to go into gear. I disconnected the battery for about 5 minutes and then it shifter fine. The rest of that trip had no hard shifts at all - super smooth. Parked it again for maybe an hour. Didn’t want to go into gear until I revved it up, then it engaged. Had a couple hard shifts but at least got it home. This morning - same thing. Didn’t want to go into gear. Revved it up and it engaged, then I could go back and forth between drive and reverse just fine. I’m in LA and don’t have easy access to a flat enough surface to do much work on this thing myself very often. I read that it could be the solenoid pack. I would like to check the transmission fluid level but I’m not even sure that I can get under it to do that. Any help would be appreciated. I’m not in a good situation to go down the wrong road with this one. Thanks!
