Today I got a oil change and filter. I checked the air duct and I found lot of sand there. After cleaning the duct and filter, Now car is acting weird. Putting gear into D gives a Jerk to Car and gear is shifting on high RPM i.E 3000 RPM. Please advise.

Thanx in advance :)

Which duct are you referring to? Is it the air filter box? If so, check around it to make sure nothing was left disconnected such as vacuum hoses or electrical connections. Also, let me know if the check engine light is on.

Hi, exactly, I am referring to Air filter duct. Check engine light is off.
Actually, Same was happening before. But when I encounter the sandstorm after 2 days Gear shifting was ideal till yesterday. But when I clean the filter and duct. This happened again :(

It sounds like there could be something loose. Check around the air box for wires or hoses that could be disconnected or damaged.

If it is doing it all the time, I'm surprised the check engine light hasn't come on.

Hi. I guess I got a clue. After Running the car about 30 to 45 min and restarting the engine, Gear Shifting seems fine. Why that?
After checking The hoses near air filter duct, I got something.

Thanx

In the picture, you circled a clamp. Is that what you want me to see? As far as shift solenoids, they are in the transmission.
