Look into the speedometer issue. The pcm won't shift the transmission right without the speed input. Check the vehicle speed sensor. Is it 2 or 4 wheel drive?

    No this plug would be in the tailhousing. If it doesn't have one, then look in the top of the differential.

I drained the transmission fluid put of my Jeep. I got taken away from it for about 4 days before I could get back to it. I have added fluid back in slowly.


Sounds like maybe the filter isn't seated in the seal or the seal is missing/broken and sucking air into the pump, this would cause bubbles, one way to tell for sure is to overfill the transmission by a couple quarts for testing and see if the bubbles go away.

Transmission problems


Well, the car is 20 years running on the road, one can expect gaskets and seals to start leaking. If you stop the leak and keep it full, you may be alright. But running low fluid for very long will definitely damage the transmission, so do get it fixed, and keep it full but not overfull till fixed. There aren't that many places for an automatic to leak. There are axle seals where the two front axles go into the transaxle. Fairly easy to replace. There is a gasket where the bottom fluid pan bolts to transaxle. Also fairly easy to replace. There are two fluid cooling lines from transaxle to radiator or to a small radiator-like cooler in front of radiator. Leaks can develop in the lines, at the fittings where they connect to transaxle or to the radiator. Leaks anywhere there should be fairly easy to fix. There is another seal, a front transaxle seal, and if bad, fluid will be dripping off the bottom front of the tranny where it mates to the engine. If this seal is bad, the transmission will have to be removed from vehicle to replace it. A $5 seal, but the fix requires pulling the transaxle-ouch! That is about all the places where leaks can develop-except there may be some bolted on or screwed in fittings (like the reverse light switch, for one). These fittings would have seals, O-ring seals, or gaskets that may start leaking.
If it gets low on fluid that fast, it would seem that you should be able to spot where it is leaking. Use rags and wipe off all the old fluid and dirt from the transaxle. After a drive and then parked, you may be able to see where the leak has allowed new fluid to escape. Good luck.

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.

05 pontiac Bonn with 35000 miles,the car shudders when it shifts into second gear.


Hey Ben, you might want to try changing the transmission filter and fluid - dirty,messy job but not difficult or spendy. Parts readily obtainable at local Auto Zone or equivalent store. 1- raise front of car and secure with jack stands. 2- loosen transmission pan bolts starting with the rear ones until fluid begins to drip into drain receptacle ( no drain plug so you need to slightly loosen pan for drainage) 3-once fluid has stopped dripping remove entire pan. 4-filter is held in place by clips that allow it to slide out at an angle remove and replace with new one-after that just reverse procedure remembering to tighten bolts in a 'star' pattern so as to have even pressure on gasket for a proper seal. Let me know how it goes - Bonnies rule!!
