    all the mechanical work was done to radiator,rear motor mounts and thats all I can think of at this time. It might be coincidental,but like I said we can be pulling out of an intrsection and need the acceleraton to avoid cars coming up on us to fast,and the car will just act like its in neutral for 5 to 7 seconds. hope its an affordable problem or one the insurance co. may fix(i am broke) thanks,scotmon

    if rear engine mounts were redone do to accident, tech should have done diagnostic for tranny. insurance may try what they can to not address this but you have chain of evidence that points to issue being caused by accident. good luck.
