I have noticed as of late that my transmission is shifting harder. It is more noticeable between 3rd to 4th and 2nd to 1st. I was tempted to wait it out until I came to a light today when that characteristic 'thump' turned more into a punch in the back.

It has been a few thousand miles since I've done any wheeling (yes, it sucks), so I'm doubtful that was the cause of this. So, before I haul this thing to the dealership and risk a gigantic black mark on my permanent record, is there anything I could be missing or needing to check?

when i went wheeling in water some time ago it shifted a little harder check youre fluids and drain them all so the dealer cant say anything about that.

I am pretty apprehensive about changing out the transmission fluid.
