I Would not change the fluid. I had the same thing happen to my stock trans, it would hesitate and then shift in real hard. I changes my fluid and filter and 8 miles later it gave. Had it rebuilt by a "reputable" shop and it lasted 5 months. This is why I have a BTS trans now.

I have been told that when our trans start hesitating and then shifting hard into R or D from park then you need to start saving cash very quickly. It has also been my experience.

Yea mine did too. That's why I thought it was BS but evidently it wasn't.

I am not a Trans guru so IDK what is wrong with it. I just know that it is going down by my past experiences.
My BTS Trans cost me $6400 installed by TSD. Just to give you an idea of how much cash you need. It has a 3 year unconditional warranty. I will also add that a built Trans makes so much difference in performance. When my TC locks you better have it pointed straight in the right direction, if you don't you will get sideways.

Oh i see, wait for the shudder in reverse. But yeah like stated above, new trans in your future. I would recommend a stock 5r with under 80k probably looking at $1k to $1200 installed, $700-800 for the trans itself, maybe a little less. I'd skip bts cuz of the wait imo, unless you can, and look into warren diesel trans built by Andy Warren I think. Patrickk@KEM can help there. Not sure on a wait time there.

I'm on my 3rd 5r, these things are pretty stout. Look at Nate, DD w/600hp. I'd go through 3 or 4 stockers before spending thousands on a built trans, jmo of course.
