Transmission kicks hard when put in drive

Was driving and pulled in to parking lot stopped put in to reverse, reversed it and stopped and then put it in drive and pushed the gas and it kicked so hard it felt like the whole underneath of my car fell out, after that I drove it home and turned it off, when I started it back up i ran through the gears and every gear works fine except drive it kicks really hard. When it kicks it feels like it is on the passenger side?? What went wrong? I just had the ****** replaced 4 months ago and have had issues ever since....

The problem is the transmission I'd check the fluid levels. Shops are notorious for not filling fluids to the proper levels. If that isn't the problem which it may not be Then some1 did a very bad job on the trans. The fact that you have been having problems from day 1 is not good. Even so that could be a low fluid problem so I'd check that first. Hope this helps.

My pontiac was leaking tranny fluid bad. It stopped driving, still worked in reverse tho. I


you probably damaged something internally when you ran it out of fluid, unfortunately the only fix is to pull it out and rebuild it

I have a 1991 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder automatic transmission. I was driving about 10 mph when it just stopped moving. The engine starts and runs fine but when I put it in drive or reverse it won't drive....


You have internal problems with it. Clutches are bad, or could be a hard part broken. The grinding is from the inside of the transmission turn and you put it in park. This is a normal sound, if you were driving and slammed it in park. Except your not moving.

While driving it looses power. Will stop car and put in park. Get out and check basics Oil etc and ok. Restart car no problem. Put in drive wont go. Put in reverse will go. Stop, put in park. Put in drive...


Sounds like there's a transmission problem there. Maybe try a transmission flush and fill to see if that solves the problem for about $100. If that doesn't solve the problem a transmission rebuild is probably the way to go to fix the problem.

That procedure is a lot more than the flush and fill, though.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?


Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

MAKE SURE YOUR TRANSMISSION FLUID IS FULL/ADJUST YOUR LINKAGE SO REVERSE LINES UP/REPLACE THE TRANSMISSION FILTER AND FLUID.NEVER PAY $100S-$1000S TILL YOU TRY THE ABOVE BECAUSE THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY.

Transmission


yeah its something else..

on the selector is a bushen (something like a washer) its proberally worn and needs changing. I'd recommend taking this to a auto technician mechanic ,, cause after its replaced or adjusted you will need to adjust the kick down cable as well..

it may also be a mountain(engine or transmission) mountain rubber.
