SUBARU IMPREZA BODY PROBLEM

2007 Subaru Impreza • 77,000 miles

My subaru (automatic) makes a loud clunking sound and jerking motion (in the rear) when it shifts gears at 40 km an hour. This happens when I start the car only. I can then drive the car for the rest of day, stopping and starting at lights stop signs etc. And it will not happen again. Also, it is inconsistent in that it does not happen every day but on average I would say it happens 7 times out of 10. I have had the transmission oil replaced. This did not help.

When cold, there cold be a valve body issue whether debris in one of the valves or something else.

Have a trans shop check the condition and give you there opinion
