Just to be sure I understand what the issue is, when you shift it into gear, there is a harsh engagement and then it moves and shifts just fine?
If this is the case, I suspect we have a motor mount issue.
Lift the hood and shift the engine and see if it moves when you are shifting.
I am attaching the info from the manual on how to replace both mounts. Please run through this info and let me know what questions you have.
