If it was me, the first step would be taking it to a transmission shop for a tranny-fluid change (unless you are a real wrench and can do it yourself). The transmission fluid can get dirty, breakdown from heat and/or general use/abuse, and the filter can become clogged.

    I had a transmission flush hoping it would help but the problem didn't go away. I took it to a transmission shop & they told me they are 99% positive it's the TRS; however, if it doesn't help they have up figure out what the 1% is. I've googled TRS and not sure how or why this would be the issue

SOURCE: 2001 GRAND am GT LOW ON POWER AND WON'T SHIFT

Check the transmission fluid the car needs to be running and in park to do so, if it is low that could be your problem if not look at the fluid it should be red, if it's brownish and it has a burnt smell to it you may need transmission work

What does it mean when the car jerks when you put it into gear?


The car pulls suddenly hard in forward or reverse direction at the moment you change gears.

Toyota corolla problems


After checking the easy stuff first like low oil level, if it is high RPM(revs) & shifts hard(lurch when it does shift) then I am thinking the transmission filter & oil need to be changed. The transmission filter acts as a suction screen on an automatic transmission & as it collects contaminants to protect the inner workings of the transmission, it becomes plugged which greatly affects the ability to shift especially the high gears at faster acceleration.

2005 chrysler sebring loses power driving up hill & RPM is up high, Ive changed, spark plugs & air filter. dont know what to do.


Not sure I am following your story.
Are you saying the transmission is slipping and therefore the RPM is high even tho the road speed is not ?
Or is the transmission not upshifting to the next gear at a normal road speed ?
Is the check engine light on ?

Loud clicking noise coming from engine when at high rpms. I have a stick. The noise happens just as I'm about to shift from 1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3rd, 3rd to 4th. Doesn't happen much in 4th gear or...


sounds like the rockers or lifters have some play due to wear.you don`t say what rpm you are shifting at other than high rpm.by changing the oil you have increased the viscosity of the oil as its new and not dirty and thin and cold oil is thicker than warm oil.you might want to try a heavier oil to see if it helps.you may not get this noise out unless you replace components or adjustment of rockers if they are adjustable.if its not very bad you may have to live with it.
