Other than blown to shreds inside, It is probably the linkage that got the damage and now it won't read the neutral safety switch. You can first try to start it in neutral, do not try to start it an any gear, but move the shifter up and down a hair while trying it, the switch is real sensitive and they have to be just right. To get it right, You have to loosen up the bolts, it is located on the left side of the tranny, where the shifter connects and a bunch of wires, the switch moves left and right when you loosen it up, Get somebody in the car with the car in park, and turn the switch very slight back and forth and see if it hits it. If it does, lock it down there, sometimes they use a pin to set it, not sure about your car. If that is not the problem, I'm afraid you might have done some damage to the inside, Hope this helps.

Honda element 03. Normally starts up at 1,000 rpm in park and shifts into drive smoothly. Sometimes starts up b/w 1.5 and 2k rpm at idle and JERKS into drive or reverse.Solutions?


Cars not control choke themselves electronically, this is likely the car trying to warm itself up quickly. The jerking will occurs anytime you shift into gear at an RPM over a low idle as the torque converter is being engaged. If the high idle last more than a couple of minutes then you might have an issue.

Car jerks when you shift gears


If that oil is transmission fluid, you may be low on fluid. That would cause harsh shifts. Make sure your transmission is full.
Is it just reverse and drive that ****? Do second and third shift smooth? If so, you may have a too-high idle.
If idle is good, and your transmission didn't get low on fluid, then I would suggest you drain and refill the transmission, and install a new transmission filter while you have the bottom pan off. Usually, you can buy a filter and pan gasket as a kit.

I have a 98 saturn sl1 and when shifting gears(park -drive) its jerks a bit. what does this means?


That can be a mount, but you would of said it jerks at all time from park to drive and when your driving. and also reverse.Going from park to drive is there a pause and do you hear a buzz noise then a gear change. If you did that would be the solenoid. So here it is from park to drive and the RPM is in range this is known also as a harsh up shift, it is mechanical in nature the clutch pack is taking more pressure than it need to achieve a gear change. In other word your transmission is mechanically worn
