Default My 99 4cly accord coupe is shifting up and down really hard between 1st and 2nd.... HELP!!!?

132,000mi4cyl-automaticulev-vtecI have owned the car since April 08 and have had no problems.I used to barely feel the movement from 1st to 2nd. but NOW its an obvious Jump and i do not know what is causing it!!It jumps both 1st to 2nd and 2nd down to 1st. And no... its not just before the car is warmed up. I mean after 45 min of driving as well. Would a trans. flush do the job??thanks!!!!!!!

well first off Chrys is wrong... Honda has been making an auto trans that you can manually shift since 94 and that is fine.trans flush is the best first step, there is also the issue with the control module messing up causing rougher than normal shifts. Also the torque converter may not be getting enough fluid, so maybe its nothing more than just the fluid being too low... check that first obviously, then try a flush and fill [making sure to check or have the mechanic check the fluid for metal, they do forget this occasionally]if that doesnt solve it you may need a rebuild or service to the trans.
