Chevy Malibu hard shift from park-drive, reverse but no hard shift from drive,reverse-park. Shifts smoothly from gears 1-4. Gonna try and replace the filter and fluid, take a little out and replace with lucas trans slip fix. Anyone know what the issue could be?

Well, how many miles are on this car?

Is the CEL lit up?

What kind of service has the trans had over its lifetime?

How long has this hard shift been an issue? (Tell us how much time, how many miles, or both.)

I will also suggest either front control arms are shot. ..or motor mount...or mounts.... all of mine are shot so mine shifts real hard .... drive or reverse. ...do not let this go on for long as it tears up other stuff aswell

Is your shift cable stretched a little. Is the brake switch working correctly. Or is it on its by last leg.
