First and foremost.... thanks to sheila for helping me replace my VSS.

I have a DOHC, 1996 Sable. 196K miles. Transmission started slipping so i took it to a transmission shop... more than normal shavings in the pan. Couple months go by and now.... when in "D"rive... the transmission will not shift out of 1st. When shifted to "2"... transmission with shift through all gears.... including overdrive.... NOW.... when coming to a stop in "2".... there is a HARD SHIFT from 2nd gear to 1st gear. If I stop quickly, there is no hard shift.

A normal drive is.... put vehicle in "2"nd..... drive around... when coming to a stop light... when decelerating..... throw shifter into "D".... to avoid HARD SHIFT... then when completely stopped.... put shifter back into "2"nd. Repeat.

Sheila helped me change the VSS as noted above....
Next was to spray out the IAC... which didn't solve problem.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated....


thanks in advance.

Dbfruth, aka derbydave, solved harsh (hard) 1-2 shifts on a gen3 vulcan by replacing tps (throttle position sensor)?

Have it at a shop right now. After computer diagnostics, computer is reading "d" as "p"ark or neutral. Will update after electrical fix.

Were you having any other issues other than the tranny problems? Like temporary loss of power steering, radio, power windows, etc.?
