Hi thanks for update if as you say this just happened as you turned key to start? if you say noise is heavy banging and possibly around the rear/of engine adjoining the g/box? this sounds like the adaptor plate that is fixed/secured to crank flywheel and has the torque convertor bolted to it? these plates sometimes crack or the bolts securing t/convertor come loose and causes banging due to movement with the same sudden starting as your symptoms however if you wish to diy check? disconnect earth lead on battery then remove starter motor after disconnection of leads then you should see through starter mountinghole the flywheel? and a series of bolts/heads if you turn engine clockwise by hand use a socket+bar to check these bolts for secure? should have 6 or more?? around the circumference ? if loose? retighten? but if sheared then box has to come out for further investigationas to damage? sorry but let's not think negative waves eh? will keep fingers crossed for good luck ?

My car would not start during cold weather, I replaced battery and starter, but did not fix problem. I found that the problem is the ignition switch, I could get it to work by banging around the ignition switch and holding the key in the start position.

First gear hard banging noise


You have a failed & worn out transmission
Seldom do they go 150,000 without a rebuild

Just purchased this 1998 olds intrigue with 158,000 miles on it and it slightly bang shifts into each gear while rolling down the road think its major problem? any help greatly appreciated thanks


Loud noises are not good in an automatic transmission. I suggest you have this looked at professionally before something serious happens and you are stranded.

Thanks for your visit today.

My 2004 chevy Malibu 2.2L automatic started making this banging noise everytime I shift from P to R or D. It also jerks when i shift. Then it also makes a bang noise and it jerks real hard when shifting...


First change tranny fluid and filter. Check the tranny mounts and motor mounts. The GM's also have an automatic torque converter clutch circuit that can cause problems just like this.

big bang theory.

Ok, I've never heard of this happening to someone. If you turn left or right and apply brakes there is no noise. That means that the front end is probably ok. If it doesn't seem loose that way.

If you have a Sears nearby take it to them so they can listen to this banging.

They probably won't charge to look at it.

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where


The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

Starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles


perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
