The car mostly shifts hard into second gear and reverse. It is not clunking/banging as violently as it was banging prior to changing the mounts, but it is still banging nonetheless. We also drained the transmission fluid and changed the transmission filter yesterday to see if that would help. I have been good about tune ups and oil changes but honestly, I do not think I have ever had my transmission fluid flushed or changed.
One last question. I drove it into work today probably not the best decision, but I did. I minimized the banging by sliding the car into neutral each time I applied the brakes. That way there was no banging as I slowed down. Then when I accelerated I went from neutral into drive. When it was just about to shift gears, I let my foot off the accelerator and that helped so it did not bang so hard. Once I had it up to speed on the freeway there were not any problems at all.
