Default Transmission Issue after Accident

I am having an issue with hard shifts. About 8 months ago, my car was parked at work, and a city bus hit it and broke my spoiler, bumper and tail light.

I have pictures of the car being pushed forward from the pavement to the dirt/grass.

The hard shifting did not start to occur until after this incident. I have a feeling that it'* possible that there may have been a lot of stress/strain on my transmission at that point. And also on my engine mounts.

This is what happened, hit by a big EMTA bus from Erie.

This is where it was pushed to.

This is how far it was pushed.. 2 - 3 feet. No jumping or skipping from the tires was evident on the pavement. It appeared to roll.

And here you can actually see the dirt that was pushed forward from the tire.

Check all your motor and trans mounts to make sure they are all working.

The tranny and engine share mounts and it very possible that you have one that has broke due to the strain caused by the accident.

Same Answer, Different Forum.

Shouldn't be an issue.
