Sounds like you have a broken engine mount. Open the hood with the engine off and rock the car back and forth if you hear the clunk then you know you have a broken mount

Car jerks hard taking off


Since you\'re old school I would think you\'ve already checked the normal stuff like the fluid level in the transmission. If this is good, has the transmission ever been serviced? I\'m not familiar with your vehicle so if it has a filter it could be that is partially clogged, Does the fluid have a strong smell to it? Does is feel absolutely smooth or can you feel or see little flecks of something in it. You may solve this by dropping the pan and replacing the filter. But if that is the problem it will only be temporary as if there is debris in the pan you are ready for a rebuild.The sooner you do it, the better before you have hard part damage. Another possibility is a bad solenoid in the tramsission that isn\'t sensing the pressure until it is high enough to jerk when it kicks into gear. Again to even check this though you need a transmission guy to pull it and look it over. Sorry guy.

My '05 altima hesitates when i shift from park to drive then jerks into gear. once driving changes gears smoothly, no jerking, no slipping, no hesitation.


Read the owners manual for checking the Transmission Fluid. Usually it involves putting the car in Neutral and checking the fluid. If it is low, that could be the problem. If it is not, it may be a problem with the gears. I would take it to a shop to try to diagnose the issue.

I was driving to work this morning and was in 3rd gear, went to down shift at a stop sign and its stuck in 3rd gear. 1988 jeep wrangler. It has been grinding the gear for a few weeks now everytime I change...


The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.

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.

When driving the truck tends to rev way higher than normal, when you are at a stop and then try to go depending on how hard you hit the gas it will bog down almost dying, or die. also when you are driving...


sounds like your torque converter going bad. change the tranny fluid, and look for metal shavings (have a pro do this), sometimes you can squeeze enough life out of a bad tranny/torque converter by changing the fluid, or it might just be a clogged tranny filter. change the fluid, and if theres metal shavings in it, sell it while it still runs.

I have a nissian bluebird 1996 automatic car. just recently noticed that when you start and drive as soon as the car is changing its first gear it sort of changes gear with force and you could feel...


well if the shifts are all late then they may feel rough.This could be caused by a bad throttle psition sensor and this common on nissians. If the shifts are times correctly and you feel a slide - bang in 2nd then this is usually the beginning of the end.

The shift doesnt go into gear one and is very hard to put it in park. It feels as if it is getting stuck. How can I fix it that the shift will shift gears smoothly?


have your transmission oil replace, drain the old oil and put some gear cleanser about a liter or two then start the engine for about 5 sec., then drain again for the dirt to come out before putting your new oil...

Jumps when it changes gears


my guess is that it might be a mount bad and your feeling it jump in the housing of the mount. its also possible that there is a computer malfunction but its not common. my last educated guess is that there is a mechanical problem in the transmission. but it the clutches are not slipping and you don't hear any noises and the fluid is at the right level then it doesn't sound likely. its hard for me to tell exactly without me being able to be there and diagnose it. try sitting in park and holding the brake. shift from drive to reverse and back again to see if it feels like its jerking into gear. if so i would really check for a bad mount. i work a little on rear wheel drive transmissions. but don't have much experience in front wheel drive ones. but they are similar. hope this helps. texastbone

Transmission jerks


One possibility is that the speed sensor is going out. When that happens the computer gets bad information and thus makes bad decisions. When the car goes into 2nd all of the solenoids are actually off. That is so if there is some kind of problem the transmission gets no power, then it still has P, R, N, 2nd. It would be kind of weird, maybe, to see only the 1-2 shift being affected but I can't really think of anything else that could cause that kind of problem.
