Unhappy Very hard 2-3 upshifts on manual transmission

Hi all,

I'm new here and looking for assistance with a transmission problem on my 2002 2.3L 2WD Ranger. The symptoms: On the 2-3 upshift, the engine revs quickly and then, BAM! shifts into 3 quite hard. I am usually able to anticipate the 2-3 shift and lift off the throttle in order to ease the shift and the obvious stress on the drivetrain. This also happens on the 3-2 downshift.

Any thoughts? Any assistance is most appreciated.

Best,
Tim

How is it the engine is revving and shifts into 3rd...??? when you said you lift your foot off the pedal and its a manual, so your shifting into 3rd..?? I'm thoroughly confused

Oops! My bad. It is an automatic transmission. Sorry 'bout that! I'll see if I can edit the title in my original post. Thanks for replying.
