Have you checked your motor mounts just in case?

No not yet. What am I looking for when I look at the engine mounts. With the engine mounts if they were loose wouldn't the engine at an idle, idle rough?

Get a flush asap. My 02 with 65k on it started acting fishy with a hard bumps into gear and out, got it flushed and the problem was all gone.

Has this car ever had the tranny fluid and filter changed? Does or has the SES light been on? Does this problem occour on first start as well, or only after the car has been driven? When you go to stop, do you feel the slight downshift to first?

Since I have had the car the transmission had maybe 7500 miles on it. I have put the other 15000 miles on it. So I haven't thought of getting a flush.

Well what I tell you guys now might change from a tranny problem to an engine mount problem. When the car is at an idle and somebody puts the car into gear the engine and tranny all move. Now which motor mount might be bad?

in regard to the trans. issue i feel that a flush wouldnt hurt its around 20 bolts and the pan drops and the filter is pressed into the valvev body on the bottom of the trans it is an easy job if you know car maintainance. for engine mounts have some one put the car in gear and hold the brake and slow ease the accelerator up to 1500 rpms then let off if the engine leans one direction as he accels and flops back after he lets off then an engine mount is a good guess

This might sound a litle crazy but check your coolent over flow tank and see if the fluid is not the right color or even dark. I had my trans being hesident when changing from P to D and if it did not catch right away it would slam in to gear and shake the car. I took the car to the mechanic and had him check every thing out It turned out that the trans cooler that is in the Radiator had a leak causing the pressure to drop and did not show any change in the fluid level.

Once replaced the problem went away and has not came back (knock on wood)
