VSS

My transmission bucks out of first, and if i get on the gas after that, or run out the passing gear, it takes a while to shift over to third, i have never had problems with it not shifting into the gears, and its been this way for a few years, i saw a few things about the vss, and was wondering if it sounds like tranny death, or sensors, i replace the trans filter and fluid when needed.

Re: VSS

Rather than guess or replace parts maybe not needed , your best bet would to get a diagnostic test / scan carried out ?

Re: VSS

There can be codes without the light.
