intermittent trannie problem

Hi All:

I have a used SE Wagon 2002 with Automatic Transsmission (67,000 miles). I have noticed on occasion when the car shifts from 2nd to 3rd it lurches forward - rather rapidly-. Additionally I have noticed a flat spot at times when shifting in high gear from 4th to 5th. Does it mean that the trannie is shot (transmission fluid is good)...or is it a computer control issue. I need to take it to a Ford Dealership to get it properly diagnosed?

Thanks in Advance.

call your dealer and see if they have an updated tranny program they can download for you.

i dont think your tranny itself is bad. no codes?
