auto trans bump shifting down

Asked by Nov 05, 2011 at 08:57 AM about the Dodge Neon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

recently my radiator and trans cooler failed and filled my trans with antifreeze. The trans has been flushed and the filter replaced. Back on the road---it shifts very smooth all the way into 4th gear. On the way back down at precisely 25mph there is a hard downshift. Could it be the solenoid pack or speed sensors or possibly something else? Any help would be appreciated.
