Same problem here to.. Subscribed.. I have read changing the rear diff. speed sensor will cure the problem but I changed mine and it still shifts hard. No codes, no blinking o/d light. I have also come across TPS sensor posts above the gas pedal but I have not changed it yet. Hopefully someone else can chime in.

Yeah I had mine trans replaced about 60k miles ago it shifted hard before and still shifts hard after, I took it back to the mechanic and he said everything checked out. Autofair- Where is this solenoid located?
