SOURCE: Jerks going into 3rd Gear

You the beginnings of what is known as the reverse slam. If caught early enough it is fixable. However, most times a rebuilt valve body is in order. I do it for around $200. For the record any late 1992-2002 valve body will work, those are the type II. Type I won't work and is 1992-early 1992 years.

SOURCE: Car jerks with loud knock when shifting from park to drive

Ok the knock is your flex discs on the drive shaft are bad along with the carrier bearing. Replace before you get stranded or it comes loose.
Fuel distributor may need work if it is hard to start when warm, Replace OVP relay by battery also, its always an issue.

SOURCE: rpm is dropping,and the car is jerking

I would check the fuel pressure and replace the fuel filter, if it hasn't been done in awhile. Is the check engine light on?

Try adding a bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer...add when motor is warm...tranny filter is most likely clogged and dirty...this additive works on most...

What is wrong with my car when it jerks in drive

jerks when?

moving the shift lever. with hand?

moving car. in gear,name the gear, drive, L or reverse?

jerks from, 1 to 2nd gear, 2nd to 3? or ? (or when IT down shifts)

pretend we are blind (we are) and cant drive car,(hopeless) and

tell us exactly what works and dont work driving.

hot /cold engine, fast /slow/ accelerating/ decelerating, up hills and what gears.

if engine is hot, is your idle at 800 RPM parked, in park.


if not the idle controls are out of control and when you shift to drive

IT will jerk. this is an engine problem.

there are lots of other symptoms.

Why will my 1995 lexus ls400 not shift into park or reverse from drive/neutral?

Could be computer related, many times its the transmission gunked up with sludge. Transmedic is a fix that takes a few days to actually work but only last a few months if thats the issue. Most honest shops will take out the trans and open and clean it out, Many just want to rebuild it, needed or not to make money. You can also check the linkage that goes from the shift to the transmission. many times it can loosen, especially if you like to shift manually or hard.
Hope this helps, Have a great day and God Bless :O)

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.

What does it mean when the drive & reverse indicator light or on at same time and car jerks like it loses pressure in a 1992 lexus ls400, also reverse ligts dont come on doing this issue

I have a 1992 LS 400 and twice it has not shifted out of second and I had instrument lights give false information and once it would not start. Long story short, all problems were caused by broken wires in the bundle by the left trunk hinge. My mechanic lengthened the broken wires and dressed the bundle away from the hinge. So far, so good. Remember the old computer adage, garbage in, garbage out ? This is true re: this car's computer.
