Question about 2007 Pontiac G6 GT Convertible
Car jerks really hard when taking off from a stop. The transmission shifts smoothly otherwise and goes into drive or reverse from park with no problems. The problem occurs when the car is stopped at a red light and you push the accelerator. The car will hesitate then jerk really hard. It is an intermittent problem and hard for an old school car guy like me to diagnose.
Since you\'re old school I would think you\'ve already checked the normal stuff like the fluid level in the transmission. If this is good, has the transmission ever been serviced? I\'m not familiar with your vehicle so if it has a filter it could be that is partially clogged, Does the fluid have a strong smell to it? Does is feel absolutely smooth or can you feel or see little flecks of something in it. You may solve this by dropping the pan and replacing the filter. But if that is the problem it will only be temporary as if there is debris in the pan you are ready for a rebuild.The sooner you do it, the better before you have hard part damage. Another possibility is a bad solenoid in the tramsission that isn\'t sensing the pressure until it is high enough to jerk when it kicks into gear. Again to even check this though you need a transmission guy to pull it and look it over. Sorry guy.

If the transmission shift smoothly, then the transmission is fine and working great. Check fuel,spark plugs ,wires, coil pack and injectors. if they are good the you might have a clogged fuel pump or filter.
