We might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

SOURCE: Car makes loud banging noise and jerks very hard

Sounds more like a transmission problem than motor mounts.

Have your husband check and make sure that the transmission mounts look good, and that the cv joints are good and tight.

Most likely it is in the transmission (I am assuming an automatic transmission with around 120,000 hard miles?) and will need to go to a professional shop unless you have the proper tools and expertise.

Grand marquis jerks in all gears 85.000 miles


It could be the converter is going bad or a sensor.next time you are driving it and it is jerking put your foot on the brake pedal,dont put the brakes on like you are trying to stop just push lightly on the pedal.This unlockes the converter.if it stops jerking you have a bad converter or a sensor related to it.

99 isuzu rodeo auto transmission making loud noise when shifting


It wil require that your trans is rebuilt or replaced
with a factory built or reman

If you change your fluid every 3 years you avoid
most trans problems

After 12 years they are pretty much worn out anyway

Sounds like a bad Throw Out Bearing.. Needless to say.. it has to be repaired.

Depending on mileage.. may as well replace the clutch/pressure plate.. and have he flywheel looked at.. change the tranny oil.. check the u joints.. rear end etc..

Best of luck!

Shift in gear won't go , front wheels locked up


Hate to say it but it sounds like your looking at a new or rebuilt transmission. Get a diagnosis anyway, just to be sure I'm not jumping the gun.
