Usually its a sign of worned or clog transmission or faulty ECM transmission module, slipping and delaying when change gears usually common to high mileage vehicle. Beside spending big buck servicing the transmission, I would first try to have the transmission flush and filter change and see if that would make a different. On the module, there really no way of testing it, I don't know of any place offer a bench test on the unit, if they do it would cost you 75-100 bucks by the time you do all the driving and pay shipping and handling which you be better of and buy a used replacement for the same price. My personal opinion on all domestic vechicle to have transmission flush every 75k on hard driving/pulling and 100k on normal driving. On foreign cars will be 100k. Know days it not even worth having it rebuilt, you can probably locate a used one from a junk yard for 300-500 bucks which rebuilt will cost you same amount or more; ebay also has some great deals on all the parts you need.

Sounds like you may have a plugged transmission filter, I would change that first.

If that doesn't work you will need to check fluid pressures and run a diagnostic scan to diagnose further.

For some reason my 98 honda accord 2.3 engine. Its starting to jerk slightly when I drive over 45 miles an hour nd I break to a complete stop thats when I feel the jerk. Sometimes the jerk can be harder...


Front brake rotors need to be turned and new pads. Adjust rear brakes. the front brakes are doing all of the stopping. (overheating the rotors, premature pad wear).

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...


A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

Hi i have a 2001 honda accord ex v6 coup. it had an automatic transmission when i put it in reverse it jerks really hard an shakes the car sometimes. when i put it in first gear it jerks the car alittle...


I suggest you have a transmission shop take a close look at your vehicle. That year accord with a v6 and automatic transmission had a recall for the transmission and your problem seems to be a slowly dying tranny.

Car shifts hard (up & down), especially shifting to reverse.


that delayed reaction may be the transmission slipping. with those many miles it could be the transmission going bad

Did you check the transmission fluid level? If necessary, add fluid. However you probably have a more serious problem. Take the car to a qualified transmission mechanic.
