When I'm picking up from a complete, and my car changes from first to second, the shift is ruff. Sometimes its fine, most of the time its not. All the other gears seem to change fine. Any i'deas on what wrong

more then likely it needs a shift solenoid and the valve body cleaned. same thing is going on with my car right now but i just don't have the time to fix it. and the side cover sucks to get off

haven't grand am's trans always had a lot firmer shift from 1-2 than all the other gear changes. Mine does the same but it isn't a jerking or anything. Its just a quick snappy 1-2 which I feel is normal of the transmision. Ecspeically for the gearing this car has.
