I would to know if a bad transmission speed sensor can cause the car to jerk when you shift into drive or reverse


Hard to tell without knowing what year, make, and model of vehicle we are working on here. A speed sensor would not cause this, but bad engine or trans mounts could, or possibly a sticking valve body in the transmission.

Jerking accelerating


This may be normal but you can adjust your driving to reduce the impact. To speed up the warm up process of the catalytic converters, the power train computer holds first gear a little longer than normal. This causes your car to get higher in the rpm range than normal, at part throttle, which causes the hard shift. On your first drive, try NOT to accelerate while the car is in first gear--it won't take long for you to learn how far this is.

My mercury montego idels too fast and when you put it into gear it jerks the transmission


This car has an automatically controlled idle speed system, so when you have a problem like this you must have the dealer run what is called an active engine running test, the test puts the engine through the paces and returns data to show possible problems.

Car jerks when you shift gears


If that oil is transmission fluid, you may be low on fluid. That would cause harsh shifts. Make sure your transmission is full.
Is it just reverse and drive that ****? Do second and third shift smooth? If so, you may have a too-high idle.
If idle is good, and your transmission didn't get low on fluid, then I would suggest you drain and refill the transmission, and install a new transmission filter while you have the bottom pan off. Usually, you can buy a filter and pan gasket as a kit.

My 2005 chevy impala started jerking and then it wouldnt chnage gears unless i press the gas all the way to the floor is it the transmission?


no on 05 chevy the transmisson shift is control by vacume look for a vacume line that is dry rooted or has come off start at the engine first then work the way down to the transmisson. a line off or dry rotted any where in the syastem will give you a hard shift sometiimes like a hard jerking motion when
shifting.

What would cause the transmisson on my 03 trailblazer to shift from drive to neutral when cold and braked to a stop? Have to shift to reverse and back to drive to reingage drive.


sounds like low fluid, check the trans fluid, if its fine, there might be a pressure seal, starting to leak in the trans. hope this helps

1984 CJ7 stuck in reverse. Staight 6, 5 speed and will not shift out of reverse.


you have a bent shift fork or shaft, you will need to remove the dust boot pull the shift snap ring it the shifter is in the floor and pull the shifter stick off then remove the transmisson top cover and replace the reverse first shift fork, this is the most common cause, if it has a columm shifter then disconnet the shifter lever and try shifting if it shifts then you have bent linkage and will need to figure out where it is located.

97 yukon 4wd. Jerks and makes noise like its


Hi amberdawn_84

My 97 yukon did the same thing (I believe). The valve body in the transmisson wears out (design problem) and causes the transmission to shift really hard. My repair was about $500 (nondealer).
LOVE MY YUKON!
