Hey Scotty! I have a 2006 Infiniti FX45 with 259,000km and I have replaced the transmission with a used one that had 130,000km on it about a year ago. I am experiencing a hard shift that kind of feels like a kick from 2nd to 3rd gear. Sometimes it does shift weirdly but not often and sometimes it shifts totally normal from 2nd to 3rd. Also when my vehicle is cold and I start driving and slow back down to come to a stop it gets stuck a little while in 2nd gear I think before it goes to 1st so I have to come to a complete stop for a couple of seconds before I drive again or it’ll shift very unusually and also sometimes when I come to a stop it shifts a little hard and kind of kicks when it’s downshifts from 2nd to 3rd. I am not sure what to do or where to start. I was thinking of taking it to Infiniti for a programming but I don’t know if that is smart or not. Also I do have the BlueDriver scanning tool which is awesome but I don’t think that’ll help me. Please help! Thank you!

Are you installing a lousy JATCO transmission? That are even worse w/ 100,000+ miles on them?

trannys stink, change the fluid and pray that helps. Putting a used on in, big gamble, plus junk yards always lie about mileage on them
