and i wanted to troubleshoot my problem prior to taking it in
When in idle, my car's rpms are fine, around 700
But when i shift into drive and reverse, the car jerks prior to driving off. it does it more in reverse than in drive, and at one point i've heard the car make a loud "click/snap" noise after shifting into reverse.
I had a complete flush of the tranny fluids done about a week and a half ago. but i noticed that its leaked small amounts of fluid since then. i havent been able to tell what kind of fluid it is, but when i figure it out, ill post back w/ an edit.
its not leaking any fluids. and when i shift to reverse but keep the foot on the brake, it makes a noise similar to when you pull the e-brake up. like a crank almost, as if the tranny is having a hard time putting it in reverse.
the problem comes and goes and seems to occur more after driving for a long time. as of right now i'm trying to drive as little as possible before deciding whether or not i want to get another transmission or get another car all together.
have the same problem?
