    I have a 99 XLT and it seems to shift sluggish at low speeds .. im not sure if its 1st into 2nd or 2nd into 3rd (right from stop to go) . I notice that the RPMs shoot up to about 3,000 before it shifts into gear and I feel a slight jerk. At normal high speeds as if i floor it shifts fine as well with higher gears and speeds. Should I be worried? Or is this normal? Anyone else experience this? I had my fluid changed out about 12,000 miles ago.
