    To argue with the previous poster.. and maybe answer your question.. every vehicle with an automatic transmission references the throttle position sensor to gauge demand on the powertrain.

    How does a car know to shift from 1st to 2nd at 1500 RPM sometimes.. and at redline other times? The TPS.

    This is a very common problem when it comes to sporadic shifting, or hard shifting. The tranny has lost one of it's reference points.

    Yes!!!!!!! The E in 4eod means electronic shift. It uses it to determine how much of a power demand there is from the driver.=)

    It does provide info to the ECU and TCU ..so if it is bad..it could affect shifting...as could a lot of other engine perforance related issues..best to have it checked..rather than just throw parts at it ( will probably be cheaper in the long run)

    lots of things can either effect shift points, or seem like a trans problem..
