Very hard 2-3 upshifts on manual transmission
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.
