My civic ex is lurching and impedeing

Hello Kim,

Lurching and "impedeing" is not the most comprehensive
description I've ever heard.

That could describe everything including
wheels falling off... flat tires...
LOCKED UP CV-Joint... dried out oil-less manual transmissions .. to pistons sticking outside the engine block.

Perhaps you failed to pay a pile of parking tickets...
and have a wheel-lock attached? ((I'm just saying))

My best "ADVISE" would be to guide YOUR "lurching and impedeing" down to your first local muffler shop that offers FREE READING...

(FREE is a relative term) ... Have them READ your
DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES... For a good starting place.

It would be WISE to know the prices of some of your "PARTS"
before you go...

Or you could relate more relevant details... year, engine displacement, tranny type... Maintenance history and
POST a better question... provoking a better answer.

Hope I'm helping!

Vehicle lurches and lunges, lacks power, especially when hot or cold.

When engine is at idle does it run smooth until the transmission is engaged and you increase engine load it starts to stuble? If so you may want to check fuel pressure, possible fuel pump or fuel filter at fault.

It is stuck in park I have removed the bezel and the center console cover but can't get the part surounding the gear shift off ( where it says park drive etc. ) Any suggestions about what to do

The issue may not be the shifter assembly itself. This is really one of those issues to have a shop take a look at it as there could be something else in the safety features of the vehicle causing it to not come out of park (for example, on my old 1997 F-150, the brake switch wire severed and caused the truck to become stuck in park. Why does that matter? Because, if the truck, as a safety feature, does not know the brake pedal is pressed, it doesn't let the vehicle come out of park).
It could also be a bad range selector sensor on the transmission, however, I'm not sure if these Pacifica's are equipped with them or not or if they have a straight cable from the shifter assembly to the transmission set up.

20004 Saturn i am having shifting problems will not go into gear smoothly,if at all . 5th gear in nearly impossible to find with out grinding . Is it the shifter ,clutch or clutch pedal not engaging?

Possible causes are: The clutch is going out, the hydraulic clutch system is low on fluid, or the transmission input shaft is binding on the pilot bearing. 1. Is the pedal firm and does it feel like it used to? (low fluid). 2. Once in gear and moving push on clutch and notice when the transmission disengages. If it does not disengage until the pedal is almost at the top then the clutch is getting thin and will need replacing. 3. With vehicle on a smooth flat surface, depress clutch and try to shift into any and all gears. Notice if vehicle tries to lurch forward as shifter goes into gear. This may be a subtle lurch but should be noticeable. This checks for a binding pilot bushing. Let me know what you find. Thanks and please rate.

2000 Prelude with 85,000 miles was rebuilt by a mechanic and still had issues so I took it back and he replaced the solenoid but it still isnt right. Primarily when its cold it slams hard from Park into...

These transmissions are not difficult to fix as long as you are meticulous in cleaning and replacing EVERY o-ring and seal.A general mechanic would most likely not understand the importance of this or have the knowledge of honda automatics to repair it successfuly. If he charged you to fix it and it is not then is his problem till he refunds your money or makes it right.I always replace the torque converter and instal a new cooler so i know there is no remaining trash from the original failure in the system. Flushing the original cooler is dam near impossible.The filter is internal and just a little trash will restrict it and cause all kinds of bad symptoms especially when it is cold and the fluid is thicker.Without knowing the 4 digit code on the trans it is hard to get more specific on the source of your problem.

Could frozen e brakes cause car not to go forward, car moves easy in reverse

No. An emergency brake on the 86 camaro engages the pads against the rotor and the vehicle would not move either in reverse or forward. It sounds like you have a gear problem in the transmission that could be related to either solenoid or actual gear wear. Assuming the vehicle is being MOVED as you say while the engine is running.. thus providing the energy to move it.. Going in reverse has the solenoid engaged one way, drive the other way. Solenoid sounds damaged at this point. Unfortunately this probably will require a transmission rebuild.

Put vehicle in gear and it won't drive or reverse.

There is a known driveability issues with 2004 Ford Freestars related to the PCM and the Transmission. A Service Bulletin was issued in july of 2006 covering an issue where water was entering the PCM causing a complete loss of reverse in the transmission as well as harsh or delayed shifts. Sometimes it is possible to get the vehicle moving in this condition by using the lowest gear.

In any case the fix is to remove the PCM and install weather stripping to route water around the PCM edges. The PCM will need to be dried out overnight. You can use a hair dryer on low heat settting, just be very careful.

Transmission problems on my 2004 XJ with 34,000 miles

Lurching? You mean kind of jerking when accelerating? Another person had a similar problem. To not be repetitive, this great diagnostic article points out to six possible causes of this problem:
