i disagree. it'* not a normal trait of the tranny. that should not be happening at all.
and i have no idea what you mean by 'the trans has to be in a specific position when you shut the car off the previous time'.
huh? the only thing that lines up when you park your car is the parking pawl. once that'* engaged, there'* nothing *to* line up. if it is happeneing, said person has clutch packs that are sticking, instead of staying in 'park'. on this trans, the lower band should be applied, the 1-2 shift solenoid is on, and all other clutches are disengaged.
if your car is lurching when you turn it on, take it back to the dealer. end of story. it should *not* do that under any circumstances.
