A little history on the vehicle: My driveway is sloped and occasionally when shifting from park to reverse it will make a clank, as if something was falling into place. Once or twice I have been unable to shift from park to reverse and had to turn the car off and back on before it would do so, however this has not happened in several months. A week ago, I was driving down a steep mountain (7% grade) and turned off my overdrive so that I wouldn't roll to quickly and I again got a clank when it down shifted (was driving appx 60 mph). Over the past week, I have felt a little shimmy when the RPM's get up higher prior to shifting from 1st to 2nd and then from 2nd to 3rd, however the shifting itself is smooth, with no noticeable slippage.
My question is does this sound like a solenoid, a Governor Pressure Sensor (which I hear is pretty unreliable in my particular vehicle), or do you think I may need the transmission rebuilt?
have the same problem?
