Question about 1995 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

My transmission is slipping

When I drive it takes a second or two for the car to shift, then it kind of jerks into gear. The transmission fluid is clean and full, now what should I check. P.S. - I know nothing about cars, but I am learning!

SOURCE: 1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock

if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.

SOURCE: my 1997 ford taurus transmission slips when it shifts to second

this is caused by a piston in the transmission that has a crack in it once it warms up the crack seals and operates normally.being cold the crack opens up allowing fluid to flow past it. take to trans shop as soon as you can, will be minimum repair if it has not caused further damage in the transmission.

I bought honda accord recently 2004 model. Everything working fine. Cruise control and all electronics working fine. But it jerk in first and second gear then it pick up the power. When i want to speedup...


This problem is caused by disparity between Vehicle speed and Transmission RPM preset for that speed. Transmission automatically shifts gears smoothly when car reaches a preset speed, set by the manufacturer. If either the shift solenoid is not responding or the Transmission is slipping JERK will be experienced. First check fluid levels and change fluid if it has not been changed in the last 45,000 miles. Since you just bought the car you have no knowledge. Do not do Transmission flush if you have over 100,000 miles. Only do drain and fill with Honda Fluid. Only Drain and fill is recommended so as not to wash away/disturb the friction material by power flushing. During drain and fill add a bottle of Torgue multiplier fluid available in Auto part stores. If this does not work then take it to a Transmission shop for them to diagnose.

My '05 altima hesitates when i shift from park to drive then jerks into gear. once driving changes gears smoothly, no jerking, no slipping, no hesitation.


Read the owners manual for checking the Transmission Fluid. Usually it involves putting the car in Neutral and checking the fluid. If it is low, that could be the problem. If it is not, it may be a problem with the gears. I would take it to a shop to try to diagnose the issue.

Rav4 Automatic Transmission Jerks into Second


check the level of the transmission fluid while the engine is running.
also has the transmission been "flushed"? a lot of shops just use
dextron atf with the additives supplied by the supplier of the flushing machine.
this can cause problems in toyotas.
replacing the fluid with the correct (T IV) transmission fluid
may help.
but if you are having this much trouble it may be too late.

Have a mazda 626 98' when i start up my car it's fine but when i take off about a mile or mile1/2 its starts to shifts like a jerking,almost like it wants to come out of gear,there is no noise before


I assume since you mentioned the throw out bearing it is a standard. It could be a clutch issue but it sounds more like the transmission is low or dry on fluid. Even a Standard has fluid for cooling and lubrication. In an automatic low fluid will cause shifting problems in a standard it's not so much shifting problems as it is wear on the gears and slipping.

Car jerks when you shift gears


If that oil is transmission fluid, you may be low on fluid. That would cause harsh shifts. Make sure your transmission is full.
Is it just reverse and drive that ****? Do second and third shift smooth? If so, you may have a too-high idle.
If idle is good, and your transmission didn't get low on fluid, then I would suggest you drain and refill the transmission, and install a new transmission filter while you have the bottom pan off. Usually, you can buy a filter and pan gasket as a kit.

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...


A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

4x4 slips shiftin gears starting and stopping


you might already know but when shifting into 4wd you can shift into 4hi while driving as long as the tires,(all four) are travelling the same speed. you can't shift into 4wd if you are spinning. 4 low you have to completely stop. When you are in 4 low as you know the power of vehicle is greatly increased due to gear reduction. so if you are seeing slipping symptoms, you might want to change transmission filter. It might not be much help to you but it might prevent problems down the road. also when changing fluid be sure to put mopar transmission fluid for replacement on jeep. like gm calls for dexron. the transfer case on dodge and jeeps also takes transmission fluid. I had to replace a t-case on my friends dakota that was making a grinding noise and it turns out a seal had leaked some fluid out and burnt up some bearings. pretty expensive. they are chain driven. hope I didnt get too carried away, because I am not a transmission expert but I just wanted to share what I did know with you.
