Best Answer

the tranny fluid may be low or need to flush tranny

***These transmissions are prone to failure when abused, at all. The problem you are describing sounds like intermittent failure of the EPC (Electronic Pressure Control) system within the transmission. This will require diagnosis/repair by a qualified mechanic. Do not have the transmission flushed, transmission flushes are not necessary and can damage your transmission. Even automobile manufacturers recommend against flushes - The only necessary periodic maintenance on an automotive transmission is regularly scheduled changes of the transmission filter & fluid.

My 2001 grand am gt is shifting hard someone please help?

Most often hard shifting can be fixed partially by a transmission flush and change of automatic transmission filter. Also, i have had luck with using a large magnet on the bottom of the transmission pan before the flush because parts of the clutches that are loose will not be filtered by a clogged filter. Also, on my grand am, the transmission fluid was dangerously low when i went to change it when first buying the car- this could also be a possible problem.
