2005 Dodge Magnum SXT 3.1

Hey guys and gals,

I have been noticing a hard shift between 1st and 2nd gear. It happens in both cold and warm weather. Has anyone had experience with this or know what could be causing this?

Thanks in advance,

Gloria

There is no 3.1, could this be the 3.5?

Not that I can help much with the actual problem, mind you...

Try Transtune by Seafoam.
Otherwise, it's normally sticky valves that operate particular gear change.

The Tow Guy,

I changed the oil and filter in October. Last full service was done around a year ago.
