My problem is worse on the 2-3 shift. The 1-2 shift is just o.k , the 2-3 is horrible and the 3-4 much better normal.

The harshness of the shift feels like a slight pause when shifting and then a surge forward. There is no flaring or slipping at all. It is worse at light throttle (especially when going downhills) and also worse when the car has warmed up.

I have adjusted the bowden cable to be slack at idle - I have heard about the 1/2 ball adjustment. What is this supposed to achieve ?

I have been trying to adjust the new modulator by the seat of my pants - but no settings are any good.

Is it time for a new (expensive) auto trans ?
