Hello, I just joined this message board. I am having "problems" with shifting from first to second in my car. 

I suspect is could be solenoid, a sensor or a tired tranny. 


Here's some info.


All of the car minus the engine has 250k on it. The engine is only at 130k.

I come out of first gear with high revs between 4-5k at 30-40mph and it feels rough, forward to back rocking and then proceeds to run business as usual from second to third. It doesn't at all feel natural between the action of the shift and how delayed it is. I know something is wrong but trannys are not my forte so I can't quite put my finger on it. I hope for this to be a cheaper fix than replacing the tranny. Thanks for any help!

Yeah, that was the first thing I checked.
