Yes this is the trans, this may be due to dirty fluid or trans filter, have you had the trans serviced at the recommended 60,000 mile mark?

My car is shaking when I put it in reverse and a little bit when in drive. Prior to this I changed out my plugs and wires and the car was acting up by backfiring and shaking violently.


I am thinking that with the back firing ans all ,you put the ht leads on in the wrong firing order and had 2 wires crossed
when replacing the new with the old you fixed the cross wires but reintroduced a bad plug or a bad ht lead.

When you start the engine, put it in reverse a strong odor of exhaust can be smelled, backing out from a parking space, then putting it into drive it will shake violently and die, then it is hard to r


Check if your exhaust or catalytic converter has a blockage. You may need to disconnect the exhaust somewhere before the cat. Or try taking out the oxygen sensor and run it for a moment. It will be noisy, but if it runs better, the cat is probably plugging up.

How do i put my 4x4 on my 95 yukon......on park or neutral. and do i have to put my foot on the brake?


You can shift between 2Hi and 4Hi when the truck is moving. Just let off the gas and shift it. But in order to shift to Neutral or 4Lo you need to stop the truck and shift the transmission into neutral then shift the transfer case.

When i put my 08 jeep grand jerokee larado inreverse


pull the shifter back slowly out of park and see if it engauges before or after the reverse position this could just need an adjustment in the cable if not it's an 08 you probably still have a warranty on it i would take it to the dealer if no warranty ammco or any othyer transmission shop can run a few tests on it for a low fee

You should be able to put in 4x4 while in drive less than 35mph. Mine had a switch to turn to engage or dis-engage.

if the nuetral safety was a problem the car would not start at all, sounds like you have a defective engine wiring harness, this is the most common cause of this i have seen while working for Ford.

Issues when changing gears in a automatic 2001 Volkswagen passat. Car kind of jumps or shakes when changing gears from Park to reverse or to drive. But works fine when changing gears into 4, 3, or 2.
