Is it all the time? or when it kicks down? Not sure how the V8's are setup, as I have a 4.0L but mine was missing the white piece that keeps the kickdown cable in place. The result was shifting to hard, or too soft, or not quite shifting up when it should. Once adjusted it, it was fine. Could be other issues, but a place to start.

No it is when i drive normally . when it shifts up or down it shifts hard . but sometimes when it's cold shift normal but thats rarely happens. Could it be something dropped ?? Because lately i have been takeing speed pumbs at high speed and the car hit the ground sometimes hard, i just changed the trans oil and filters before two weaks and when i came back i flushed 1 gallon. Thanks for respons

Well, hitting spped bumbs at high speed can't be doing anything good. I don't know too much about the internals, but it could be the kick back cable is out and is usually the more easier thing to do if it is. When you changed your fluid, how was the old fluid? Red and smelled ok? or did it smell burnt?
