Transmission fluid change

If my transmission shifts hard, will a transmission fluid change fix the problem? What other solutions are there for this?

Re: Transmission fluid change

then go buy a new trans filter from any autoparts (they come with a new gasket in 99% of the kits)

and buy your fluid...i forget what the service change amount of fluid is
