Hey Im having a similar problem with my 760t (130,000m) except it only happens between 1st and second. the service engine light came on recently, and stays on for about 10mins after starting my car then it goes away. the problem onnly seems to happen when i first start my car up when the light is on. i have a low drive and second gear i can manualy shift into and this some times fixes the problem how ever it rides in first for a long time tacking up my rpms, if i try to give it more gas it well just rev higher untill it feels like it wants to shift over then it does so with a kick. does any one have any ideas? i hope its not my transmition.

HI,IM CURRENTLY RIDDING A S60T AND HAVE BEEN GETTING A VERY BUMPY GEAR CHANGE ALMOST LIKE THE CAR IS KICKING INTO THE NEXT GEAR UP OR DOWN

I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THERE IS A FILTER IN THE GEAR BOX THAT MIGHT NEED CLEANING OR THE GEARBOX OIL MUST BE CHANGED
AND NOW I LEARNED THAT IT COULD BE THE OVER DRIVE OR KICK DOWN CABLE THATS OUT OF SYNCH

IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE THAT HAS THE SAME PROBLEM? AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING OR HAVE DONE?
