2.3 auto trans help please! everyone

My tranny is being stupid! Don't know why it jerks really really! Hard when I barely put it from park to any gear! Someone know why?? Fluid changed with filter and Modulator and tranny mount changed already . My rpm is high to warm up and it jerks and even when the rpm is normal idle . Can it just be fluid low somehow? I check it when its warm and it seems fine . Tranny experts please read!

check to see if the modulator is adjustable. if it is then you need to adjust it. start by centering the adjustment screw, and see what happens. then adjust the screw in or out until you get the shift feel you want.

you can tell if the modulator is adjustable by looking down the vacuum tube. if you see a screw in there, then it is adjustable.

Do I have to put a flash light in it To see it?? I replaced the modulator from autozone and I see a really small screw if u look straight to the modulator but idk if its adjustable or not. I don't want to move it and break it lol. Can u look the autozone one up please and tell me if its adjustable . And I seen one on ebay that had a wheel on the outside to adjust it

Lol I was kidding about the bands but I had another tranny that took a **** on me and so I just decided to buy one from the junkyard for cheap. But the thing is that when I installed it , I barely noticed the tranny I got had two solenoids instead of one like my original so I just swapped valvebodies over and worked . But another thing is that this jerking thing was happening in the other tranny so I don't think its the bands . And I dont know what's really going on.

Yea like if something is gonna snap . Lets just say normal cars for an example u rev high put it in gear its gonna hit the axle hard and that's what I think. My car literally moves like jumps when I put it into any gear from park or neutral. from 1st- od It shifts fine .

Fords are notorious for that lol mine does that ima adjust the bands and that would probably fix it. My friend did that and it shifts great.

yes, that one is adjustable. as i recall you need to turn the screw in to soften the shifts, but it has been a while since i had to adjust one(about 10 years). so when you adjust it just go about 1/2 to 1 turn at a time until you get the shift where you want it.
