Well first gear when starting accelerating starts to make a loud lawn mower noise. The car then sputters a bit when sitting in neutral. It seems like shifting from 1st to 2cd gear is problematic with the noise. The other gears seem fine. This has happened before and the problem went away after a few days. But now its almost day 4. Also the malfunction indicator light blinks when the engine sputters. When I accelerate out of neutral to first the engine makes a loud mower noise then it finally seems like it slips into gear and the noise is gone. The clutch does not pop or the stick shift does not pop out of gear. This is to give you more detail on the issue. After hard acceleration the engine makes a loud noise like the RPMS are too high then it finally gets into gear. At times after driving it for about 4 or 5 minutes in those gears I will be sitting at a red light and the car feels like it will stall out or when I accelerate it goes really really slow like it is almost stuck then finally goes into gear. Feels like the E brake is on when it accelerates. If you have anymore suspicions let me know if there are some things I can do at home before taking it to the shop. I am not the best with cars so some easy stuff.
Thanks for your reply
