The transmission is acting up. When I accelerate from a stop, it delays for about a second then jumps forward.

    The filter and the fluid were both changed a month ago. This was a problem before the change but now its acting up again so soon.

Most likely cause is the shift solenoid and/or trans fluid condition or lack of fluid

then there are the more serious issues of abuse and no fluid but we'll cross those bridges latter

do you have access to a professional scan tool?
NOT the type at an auto parts store

you may have stored codes that will assist in the diagnoses of this concern

and finally... what engine/trans combination do you have?


keep me posted

Have you put the right fluid in transmission?

    Yes. the regular transmission fluid. Do you really think it is the fluid?

There seems to be a one or two second delay between when I step on the accelerator and when it takes hold. Forward or reverse


first thing i would check is the transmission fluid if its low it might be slipping. just a thought

2000 Mercury grand marquis has frequent intermittent shuddering, especially going up hill, and stops when ever I let off the gas or give it more gas. Also now it's starting to have delayed downshifts...


These sound like two seperate problems. The first sounds like a clogged fuel filter or faulty fuel pump. The second problem could be a bad transmission filter.

Engine jumps/RPMs rise or lower when stopped (with brake).


check the vacuum hose first and if it's been over 30,000 miles and you havn't had a transmission service it is a good idea to have that done
