91 300E hardshift 1st to 2nd

I have a 91 300E with 98,000 miles. I am experiencing a hard shift from 1st to 2nd gear. Trans was recently rebuilt. It did this before the rebuilding and after. The rebuild was done for a different reason. Do these transmissions have a modulator that could be bad or need adjusting????

Thanks

Yes, you can adjust the harshness of the shift via the vacuum modulator on the transmission. Do a search. It has been discussed a lot.

Last, your hard shift is not from 1st to 2nd, but from 2nd to 3rd. You have a 4-speed transmission, but it starts in 2nd gear.

1992 and later 300E's start in 1st gear.

You can engage first gear start by moving your gear shift lever all the way down to 2, then up to 'D', or buy mashing the accelerator to the floor.
