Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
Sometimes when you pull to a stop such as a red light, when the light turns green and depress accerator pedal to take off the car seems like its trying to go for the first half a second to a whole second, then there is a sudden jolt in what feels like somewhwere in the drive system. At that point it acceralates normally. The transmission has already had been flushed with a new filter and fluid installed and it still does it just on a "sometime" basis. The car only has about 78,000 miles.
I would say you changed the trans fluid to attempt
a fix for something
Old fluid out new in ,NOT A FIX AT ALL
You may have bad trans solenoids,flushing in my
opinion causes that
I never flush some people do
Have the real trans issue properly diagnosed
Your trying to put a band aid on it ,won't work
Mileage has nothing to do with anything,seldom--ever
I have seen cars come of the assy line & stop --before
they got on the car carriers to leave the factory

Have the vehicle scanned. If you have a code in the computer for maximum adapt/ long shift, replace the EPC pressure control solenoid. This a real common problem on the 4t65e transmission.

75,000 miles isnt alot of miles,unless they were mostly city miles. If you aren't experiencing any transmission problems,i would drop the pan,change the filter and whatever fluid the pan holds,and hold off on flushing the entire sytem.The clutches and bands sometimes don't do well when shocked with ALL new fluid that contains a certain amount of detergent.The only real problems i have seen with the total flush is on Dodge trucks of the 90's up to even 2000 and some later models,the transmissions use a governor pressure sensor,and solenoid,and i have seen many of them set codes after the flush,and the components having to be replaced with new.Black fluid isn't a good indicator.Brown fluid,is better than black.And red fluid is the best.

the fluid is going somewhere of course but your clutch lines do not run into the transmission itself it runs to a slave cyclinder that should be on the side of your transmission most likely where you seen that bleeder valve at normally if you can put fluid in the master cyclinder and you can shift gears fine it is your slave cyclinder that is going out if this is so all you have to do is unbolt it from the side of the tranny and replace it. It should only have 2 bolts, 1 line, and a rubber grommet on one end with a rod in it if you take it off just put the new one on the same way just in reverse order. hope every thing goes well.
