Default Re: shifting funny - jumping from gear to gear

Try changing the transmission fluid first. It might take more than one change to get all the crap out (I'm betting the fluid has never been changed). Drain and fill it. Drive it some to go through all the gears and repeat two more times. If the tranny has a filter, it would be a good idea to change that too. With any luck, everything will go back to normal.

After that, make sure the fluid and filter get changed every 30,000 miles.
