2006 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 88000 miles
I'm having issues when shifting into drive after backing up, the transmission will delay into going into drive and there would be a hard jerk forward after trying to accelerate (like it caught gear when I was pressing the gas). It started this about 15,000 miles ago and it's getting worse, specially in the cold. I now just backup slowly, wait 2 seconds, and shift into drive. I'm at a loss! Also, When slowing down to go around a corner and then giving it gas, it hunts for the right gear and does the same jerk. Would it help to change the transmission fluid and filter? I am trying avoid going to a transmission mechanic at all costs and would like to o-it-myself. Thanks.
have the same problem?
