I just bought a 2004 chevrolet and i notice when i shift from 1st to 2nd gear the shift is very rough.

I was wandering if there is anything i can do to fix this or if it is normal. The truck has 38000 miles

Also does anyone know if dealerships change transmission fluid when they get trade ins ?

A  rough 1 / 2  shift  is normally due to  a code  in the computer, have it scanned  , Recorded them and  clear .  See how that goes ,
If no codes are present  you may have a broke   acculumator spring that has wedged the acculumator  piston   to create this problem

If it is the acculumator spring wedged in the acculuator piston, how much $$ is a fair price to fix?  I have  a '97 Chevy Z71 Pickup C1500.
