Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
We have an 05 impala and ever since we bought it there has been a jerking when it first shifts. After about a year it got to the pont where it wouldn't shift at all and the dealership rebuilt the entire transmission (we had the extended warranty), this was about mid 07. Even after that though it would still ****, but we could never get it to do it for the dealership mechanic, so they didn't believe us like we were lying. It normally does it when you first start it up and does not do it all the time. Recently it has started grinding a little when it first shifts and that scares me. We are still paying it off and it has so many miles it doesn't have much value anymore (117,000). Mind you we take really good care of it and I love this car, I don't want to have to get rid of it. Any suggestion?
My moneys on pressure control solenoid in the transmission

The computer controls the shifting and there should be a shift sensor on the transmision maybe a problem with one of theme

You might want to check your motor mounts. when they go out it causes all kinds of jerking. Open the hood, put your foot on the brake and shift it back and fourth from FWRD to REV and see how much it moves. You can give it a little gas but make sure you keep your foot on the brake.
