Default Trans ?'s

It started about 3weeks ago with a very hard shift from 1st to 2nd and then the last couple days its started to idle really high from 1st to 2nd and from there its shifts normal. It does it 50% of the time now. Within the last 2 months I have had a trans fuild and filter flush done at dealership with correct fuild (MV) and had no problems with shifts points. I have replaced the rears with nitto's nt05 (295/45/18). I have read it could be due to the colder weather and dia change with rear tires. Here's the link to a video I took today.

Hard to tell.

Did it start when the ABS light illuminated?

What you described can be caused by traction control issues

It started after the new tires were put on, which was the last thing done to the car. I did have the car scanned when the ABS light 1st came on at the dealership but no ABS code issue was found.

Does your car have traction control?

The way the engine sounds seems like the TC is activating.

Did you change the front tires to a different size?
Did you change the tune?

Stock revs/mile for 245/55/18 is 705
295/45/28 is 709 so that would not be the cause.

Disconnect the battery, turn on the headlights, wait 10 minuted then reconnect.
Then go out for a drive.

Took the car up to Lidio's for inspection today, was advised 2nd gear is shot. Lidio will be rebuilding and beefing up my trans.
