Why would my transmission downshift hard from 2nd to 1st gear?
Did you already diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to verify if there is a stored trouble code? You should check the condition of your main control solenoid (it might be stuck), main control separator plate, and the gasket in your main control assembly (might be deteriorating).
