VERY hard shifting
Hey. I've looked and searched on these and other forums for this problem, and haven't found a case quite like mine.
When I shift into drive (or reverse) from park, neutral, or reverse (or drive), I'll have to wait 3-4 seconds for it to shift into drive (or reverse), and when it does, you'll feel and hear this incredibly loud clunk and you can actually see the truck "bounce" when it "finishes" shifting into drive (or reverse).
Not only that, but it also shifts hard going into and out of any/all gears when driving normally.
I became extremely baffled after realizing it doesn't hinder my MPG in any way (17.5mpg combined). Any ideas of what it is or what to do? Thanks!
