It shifts from 1st really hard and jerky. It only does it when I start off slow, or coast. If I hammer down it does just fine. My father thinks it might be the sensor on the intake pipe. He said to clean it. Anyone have any other ideas. I just hope the tranny isn't going out.

Not trying to be funny but have you serviced the tranny, i.e. fluid and filter lately? Mine was doing that in my 01 SES and after I serviced it, it did great... Just a thought...

It has a full service record and it has been done every 30,000 like clock work. It is coming time to have it done again. Maybe I will get it done early.

definitely get it serviced early. if it still acts up try adding that Lucas stuff cause it works well. i had my trans rebuilt in my 96 GL at about 110K. the guy at aamco told me most need a full rebuild at around 90K. i had 140K on the car before i wrecked it and never had trouble after the rebuild.
