hard shifting taurus

i have a 97 taurus lx and about 2 days ago it started shifting a little harder while accelerating. i havent noticed any slippage. when i step on it, everything seems normal. the fluid full and not burnt. It starts shifting hard after running for a few minutes.
any ideas would be nice
thanks

Re: hard shifting taurus

check engine light on or wacky speedometer? dying speed sensor causes some crazy shifting and that sensor sucks to get at.

Re: hard shifting taurus

the speedo sensor is fine, had it replaced about a month ago. i know with the vss, it will shift at weird times and go into overdrive at like 25-30 mph. it still shifts at the same times it always did. the ses was already on b/c of something that has to do with the o2 sensors (the sensors are good). prolly should check for codes, eh.
