Pulled up to a stop light and when it turned green the car wouldn't move. The engine reved but nothing but some jerking and barely moved. I quickly found that I could move in 2nd but just very slowly and then after some speed it feels fine. Shift to third with a hard jerk but moves just fine and 4 gear shift is ok. But starting from first is no good at all. Reverse does work just fine.
Any thoughts on this problem? At this point my only plans is to call my mechanic on Monday.
Thanks for the link. It would almost seem that the pressure is low and could only hope the filter is plugged for some reason. However, reverse works just fine with no slippage so that is probably not a good sign.....
Any recommendations on a good transmission repair shop?
I still plan on checking with the mechanic that does my heavy lifting but would like to look at options. Just to make matters worst it looks like I'm also dealing with the lower manifold leak as I just noticed that I'm starting to use coolant and the valve covers are leaking.... I would probably work on the valve covers my self but the lower manifold leak is looks like it would take me a good weekend job to fix.
