I already looked at teh 1-2 bang shift, and I have the newer TSS so thats not the problem, but my 2002 cougar shifts hard, even under light acceleration. Also it downshifts when you let off the throttle n jerks very slightly(not a massive downshift). does anyone know what this could be? Under hard acceleration the car rocks back and forth, almost as if it doesnt like the first few grand of rpms in each gear, but once it gets b/t 3-5g rpm it pulls then 5-6g it sloshes again n same for the next gear, 1-3 g it bogs or something.... n the lights dim.... Can anyone help?

Sounds about right.
