so my car has always been crappy from 1st to 2nd. and in the winter it is even worse. It had been a while since the mtf fluid had been changed, so i took it to the stealership and had them give me some fresh juce. now my 3rd to 4th shift is total garbage. in the past 3rd to 4th was always money, i could powershift if i wanted and there were never any issues.

is it possible that they didn't fill it up all the ways or something? im at a total loss. and quite pissed too.

thanks for the input.

UPDATE!!!!

so i took my car in to have it looked at and they are going to do the third gear tsb as well as give me a whole new forth gear! im so happy, i thought i was just going to have to live with it!!!!!

I know I dont have any problems, but if you have been powershifting then that could end up being the cause of some problem. Using updated fluid or the BG syncro shift could help you as well, but if you've been shifting hard or without a clutch or anything else, there's no one to blame but yourself.

But at the same time it could be the dealership's fault.
