    It is a TCC PWM Solenoid on your transmission.

    I have the same problem, my 2003 Impala slips at take off, feels like someone hit you from behind! It also does it in higher gears but not as severe, and does in on slow down driving as well. It has been doing this for 4 years now, and progressively getting worse! If this is such a problem with so many of these cars, why isn't there a recall?

Agreed. I had the same problem, transmission would lag between 1st and 2nd, and it would **** violently sometimes from a stop. Anyway, they had to rebuild the transmission. I'm not sure how much it would be as I only paid deductible from warranty ($100.00) but they kept saying average rebuild price on 2003 impala is about $1,200-$1,500.

Transmission slipping


Your tyranny is either low on fluid or getting ready to kick the bucket... one of the signs you watch for is the car Jerks hard when changing gears while cold but seems to be OK when warmed up... this can go on for months... one thing to try asap.. get the transmission flushed... and don't be a lead foot... if she is slipping it's not going to help if you give it more gas... but a lot of the time a good flush will help ( filter gets plugged and the transmission fluid isn't doing its job

2004 ford explorer truck will start will go through all gears but wont move. Cant even feel the transmission sliding into gear. There is no little jerk when you pull it out of park. Any ideas?


If you don't feel the clicks going threw the gears, the shift cable could be broken. Could be the detent in the transmission. This would go in gear though. Next would be the transmission died.

Tried to get on the freeway in my 2002 lincoln ls gave the car more gas to speed up and transmission did not responed. pulled over and now the car won't move. when I put it in drive I can feel it


check your transmission fluid level. It is better not to force it just load it to a recovery service track and take it to a qualified garage where they will check the pressure and serviceability of your automatic gear box. Looks like you have a problem with the gear box, is slipping on acceleration.

No gears work acts like its in neutral


Your transmission is worn out Bands are burnt and probably needs a rebuild or replacement. Not much doubt about it.Sorry bud its dead. Was it a transmission flush you had? With a filter change? What made you decide it was time to have ****** fluid changed? Starting to slip a little, hesitating when starting out, was probably going out before you took it in.

I have a 99 town n country. Sometimes when I come to a stop it slips out of gear. When I start to go again it jerks back into gear.


check both the motor and transmission mounts .u can do this with the help of a 2nd person .by opening the hood and standing beside the car as someone puts the car in gear in both forward and revirse and watch how much the motor rocks back and forth it should not move much at all.if the mounts are good replace any that are worn out . hope this helps

I have a 2005 Impala with a 3800 V-6 auto trans. when I come to a stop ,it jerks one time when I take off.Can you help me figger out the problem?


The transmission has not geared it self all the way to first gear and is trying to start off in second, once the car starts to move it gears back down to first gear which gives you the jerking motion you feel. Easy fix, the shift solenoid may be stuck due to dirt in the fluid and the transmission needs to be serviced, and or the solenoid may need to be replaced and the boost valve. Have the transmission serviced and have them check the transmission line pressure which would indicate if the boost valve is worn and the solenoid is getting stuck or check valve. Good luck and this should cost you around $150.00 in total so call around.

I HAVE A HONDA ACCORD 2005 THE D4 LIGHR BLINKS N GEAR JERKS


It sounds like you have one of a couple problems. First, for the D4 light to be on and flashing, there is a problem the TCM (transmission control module) is seeing. If this is a V6, these transmissions are notorious for having problems internally, and need to be rebuilt at a transmission shop, or replaced. There is also a chance that either the third or fourth gear pressure switches have gone bad they will be the black and brown switches bolted to the top of the transmission. These can also cause this light flashing to occur. I dont understand the rest of your post. If you could clarify what you mean i could try to answer you question a little better
