Last night I was driving my car and trans felt like it broke on me. 5-4 downshift at first. Also noticed it on 6-5 and 3-2. Didn't do it today but shifts feel harder. Tried to capture on my Matco MaxGo but couldn't get a clear snapshot. Also noticed shift flare when downshifting in higher gears.

I think we've all experienced this from time-to-time. The concsensus points to the engine being in regen during these harsh transmission coast downs.

That causes flare too (increase in rpm during upshift)?

Mine does that on occasion, never during regen. What drives me nutty is when it's cold the shift from 2-3 is harsh not ever time but on occasion. I hate a transmission I can't check the fluid and drop the pan. I don't believe in a never change the fluid deal. Mine needs changed I just don't want to screw with it. And changing it three times seems weird to be honest.

How many total miles on the odo and how many miles since last trans fluid change?
