Car jerks when put into drive

This is an automatic trans in a 2002 Volvo XC70. When from a parked position you put it into drive the car jerks forward. If you put it into reverse it doesn't **** backwards. This didn't happen when it was new. It has been happening for at least 2 years and I've been told it is normal

Check the engine/trans mounts. A good way to check yourself is to have someone standing in front of the engine with the hood open obviously, while you shift the tranny to drive or reverse, if your friends see's the engine moving vigorously, it's worn out mounts.

Jack up the truck and see if brakes are locked.. or just try pushing it if it rolls its probably a trans problem not a brake problem. could be the park prawl is broken in the Trans.

I was out doing erands. Put car in reverse to


check your automatic transmission fluid level.( with engine running and fully warmed up, on level surface, put car in park, set emerg. brake, open hood and check fluid level like checking oil. watching out for moving parts fan, etc. turn off engine and add accordingly using a funnel and pouring directly into tube holding tranny dipstick. use propper type and do not overfill.) if fluid on dipstick is super foamy , dark in color, showing sediment, then a tranny service with filter and fluid change may be in order? fluid is gennerally bright red in color and a little thinner than motor oil.also the bands inside of trans. might need to be adjusted if applicable? maybe linkage? an average trans. shop service check should be considered usually around 39dollars?dont get talked into a huge repair bill.but try to remedy as soon as possible before it actually does?hopfully its just a maint. issue, if not, these are the type of situations that can ultimately fester into an avalanche of fun. :) good luck

2002 caravan ec, on acceleration, once warmed up, van sputters and loses power. Let up and accelerate slowly and you regain power. Also occaisionally jerks forward at stop light, and will sometines 'grind'...


Sounds like an ignition miss, Probably has an ignition cable arcing, I'd try and scan the computer for codes, you are looking for a PO300,301,302,303,304,305,or306. If you have any of these I'd start with plugs and wires. The grinding in reverse could be the low reverse planetaries, drop the trans pan and inspect for debris/metal on the magnet, if it looks like a chia pet, replace the trans with a reman unit.

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.
