Need a bit more info. Any of the other gears rough? Have you had your ATF flushed? Any grinding or heitation to shift? Does it only happen when it is cold?

If you decide to get the Tranny flushed(T-tech), make sure the place knows what they are doing, if theres a problem this could make it even worse..



you can also pick up a bottle of quick-shift, this may ease some of the roughness.

A transmissionm should not be 'flushed,' it should be serviced! That takes a trained technician. Take it to a reputible transmission specialists. Look in the Yellow Pages and find a shop specialising in transmission repair and the longer in business the better. If it's under warranty, and you better hope it is, take it to the dealer.
