Check your fluid, it could be bad torque convertor, most likely bad trans. Try adding Lucas trans fix/additive. Any parts store will have it...the stuff really works wonders.

    Always check trans fluid when hot and engine running. If fluid is full, you can add one bottle of trans fix without damaging the transmission.if its over full already, ask the guy at the parts store, they have small hand pumps which you can use to remove fluid...straight from dipstick tube.

Sounds like a bad ignition switch. The age of your vehicle warrants changing the switch.

When accelerating from a stop, car lurches when shifting gears


On a lot of vehicles there is a transmission speed sensor that receives data that tells it how fast the car is going and shifts accordingly. If this sensor is bad the transmission can't function properly. I would have this checked, they are not that terribly expensive, and not that hard to change on most vehicles. Hope this helps.

Lurching at low speed take off


I would start by cleaning the inside of the Mass Air Flow sensor, dirt gets on the sensor element from the air going through and causes these kinds of problems, a company called CRC makes the spray cleaner for MAF's, any good auto parts store will have it, the MAF is located in the air intake hose to the engine. Another thing to check is the throttle valve and air bypass idle speed control valve for sludge, use the following procedure I have written to perform this.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Do check the motor mounts! Start the car, have a helper shift from reverse to drive! Is there a lotta engine movement?? Replace the faulty mounts. My quess it is almost flipping over! The output speed sensor likely on the back middle of the trans. There are only 2 connectors, the other is backup lights. Best I can do at this time! Frankster016

Car lurching a bit when shifting. Hesitates, then lurches. Inconsistent. At highway speeds noticed intermittent RPM fluctuations - up and back down again. thinking fuel filter or transmission?


I'd say for you to replace the fuel filter. It should only cost $20. I'm about to do that right now because I'm having similar problems. I've had that problem on my previous car and it went away after I replaced the fuel filter.
