So my tranny is going out. Sometimes from first to second it does a neck breaking jerk that shakes the whole car. I got it diagnosed at a transmission place and try told me that the tranny will take a dump whenever it feels like it. I've been experimenting with manually shifting from 1st to 2nd, then to drive. It shifts smoothe but I'm not sure if it'll mess up my transmission or not. Any comments?

shifting up is fine...shifting down is a no no..if it helps you keep the trans running till you can buy a new one go for it

Yeah, I've tried shifting down. It's worse than the kick I get. Thanks. I guess I'll shift till I can afford a transmission :D

My 99 auto had the exact same neck breaking jerk from 1-2 shifts..was told the tranny needed replacing and it was gonna sh!t out soon enough..well 2 years and 25k miles later it still held up fine, and I sold it..
