So when I drive and as I pull to a stop, I would say when the transmission goes down to firstit pushes forward. Its a automatic and the wierd part is when in drive, it is as smooth as can be. I do think that it may be the transmission but im sceptical. if anyone can tell if this is common or a sign of a future problem, I would like some input please. It doesnt push bad as far as causing a accident but noticable enough to wonder. Thank you very much

    any warning lights come on? possible engine related or it could be transmission related if the torque converter is not slipping correctly (not releasing) i would recommend having it checked out
