Had first and third gear band put on transmission, car has been running great for the last few months, no slipping at all. Have P071 code, to lean also had new timing belt put on approx two weeks before occurance. While driving on the highway the car started bucking, pulled over to the side of the road let sit for a few minutes, started car again ran ok until we hit town. Car started bucking again while driving, pulled over to the side of the road. Can not tell if car is shifting into gear due to the bucking. Car also has smell of exhaust fumes from the air vents. Not sure how long that has been going on.
