If it has a 4 speed automatic by aisin warner they sometimes get a random error and try to shift down but then reset and this will produce a jolt mine has done it twice in 175000 miles it is not something that will leave you stranded so don't worry

Last time I checked a jolt wasn't a factory option...Last time I felt a jolt, I'd broken a spider gear in the differential! That dosen't mean that that's what you have...There are numerous reasons for that and if you hear or feel anything unusual I'd have it re-checked immediately. A single jolt with no other symptoms is very hard to track down or diagnose if it left no other "footprints" behind.
It wouldn't hurt to have the shop that did the work at least give it a once over.

Oil leak. Have changed rear main seal, oil pan gasket, valve cover gasket. Any other ideas?


we learn
It is a 1987 jeep yj with a 4.2 engine and it is a stick shift.
we learn this is 3rd party question, poster not doing the work,... matters big time on answers...

ah the 4.2 with that funky electronic carb. not fun that... not ever....(the only bad jeep made)

leaks?where... ok later,, right side (usa passenger) front. of block.

leaks are hard. there are only 2 ways to find a leak.
( besides the shot gun methods) ouch

1: clean clean it spot less. drive 10 miles, bingo cause.
2: insert UV dye to oil filler, drive 10 miles. using UV lamp with kit bingo.

there is no other way..

leaks have degrees. some are best ignored. (unless rich)
I cant see it so cant advise. (is oil levels dropping weekly)

wow changed the most hard seal first. now that is brave....

the trans is stick NO A/T here nor AFT fluids
flying out the cooler line right there.

keep on mind wind and gravity moves oil to where IT wants not you. big time.
is the fuel pump port leaking
cam gear cover gasket
head gasket
or distributor leaking oil from any of 3 places?
valve cover gasket leaks, or was over-torqued and not all do like that.
get it clean and you will find the leak
and drive it, sure, some dont leak just idling
rare but true.

2002 grand am does not leak after driving, but I wake up in the morning to a huge puddle of oil.


SOUND LIKE FRONT CRANKSHAFT TIMING COVER SEAL OR REAR MAIN OIL SEAL LEAKING START ENGINE LET IT IDLE SEE IF YOU SEE OIL DRIPPING UNDERNEATH CAR LOOK FOR OIL LEAK AT TIMING COVER OR AT REAR OF ENGINE WHERE REAR MAIN SEAL LOCATED. CHECK ON TOP OF ENGINE INTAKE MANIFOLD AREA WHERE OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR IS.O - RING AT THE OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR WILL CAUSE LARGE OIL LEAK.OIL PUMP DRIVE GEAR IS LOCATED WHERE THE DISTRIBUTOR USE TO BE LOCATED.KEEP EYE ON OIL LEVEL IN CRANK CASE.KEEP PLENTY ENGINE OIL ON HAND UNTIL YOU FIX.I WOULD FIND LOCATE PROBLEM QUICK AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE OIL LEVEL GET TOO LOW ENGINE WILL SEIZE UP LACK OF OIL..

What do I do for a major oil leak? I just drove home and now I have a pool of oil under the car! Its leaking like crazy!


You probably blew a seal somewhere. I would try to pinpoint where the majority of the oil is coming from then replace that seal. A lot of times oil pan seals, drain plugs, rear main seals and valve cover seals can cause large oil leaks.

Rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??


A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.

Oil leaks


clean off the area where you suspect the leak is then run and check. The only way to change rear main seal (and have it actually work) is by removing crankshaft. I have seen this attempted at least a hundred times and never seen one yet that didn't leak. Some of the new oils for "older engines" have a seal softener in them tha usually will help but don't expect results for months...it took years for seals to harden & wear.

1997 Jeep Cherokee Leaking Oil whilst driving


This could be the rear main seal on the crank shaft that is leaking, clean around all the areas completely to isolate the leak.  There are some oil additives available at your parts store that work to cause swelling of the seal to re-seal it.  This may or may not work, but it may slow the leak.
