Chevrolet Monte Carlo Problem
Engines Affected: 3.4L V6, 3.8L V6 Supercharged
Average Mileage: 128,000 mi (118,000 mi - 138,000 mi)
2005 Monte Carlo shifting extremely hard on initial takeoff from a complete stop. About every 3-4 weeks car jerks violently forward. Once out of first gear, the car runs smoothly. Took the car to a Chevy dealership who was able to duplicate the issue and confirmed problem with the valve body. Valves, gaskets and selenoid replaced at a whopping $1400. No other major mechanical issues with the vehicle, I'm the original owner and car is maintained in exceptional condition.
