MY CAR EVERY NOW AND THEN JERKS WHEN I MOVE IT FROM PARK TO REV AND SLIGHTLY (RARELY) WHEN I MOVE FROM REV TO DRIVE ONLY. I TOOK IT IN TO TRANSMISSION REPAIR SHOP AND THEY STATED THAT THE TRANSMISSION HAD CODE THAT REQUIRED A REBUILD, OR NEW TRANSMISSION, HOWEVER THE CAR RIDE SO SMOOTH AND CHANGES GEARS FINE NO JERKS NOICES OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT. THE LED IS STATING THAT TRANSMISSION FLUID LIFE IS AT 99%. SOMETIMES THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT COMES ON WHEN I'M MOVING AT LOW SPEEDS, BUT WHEN I ACCELERATE IT GOES OFF, THIS IS THE REASON I TOOK IT IN ANYWAY. WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE AND DOES IT SOUND AS IF I NEED A NEW TRANSMISSION CAUSE TO BE HONEST JUST DRIVING THE CAR IT DOESN'T APPEAR THAT I DO. LIKE I SAID THE CAR SHIFTS TO POINT WHERE YOU CAN NOT FEEL IT, THE DIAGNOSTIC RESULTS WHICH I DID NOT SEE IS WHAT THEY STATED IS THE REASON FOR THE NEED!

    If the SES light comes on still, there is something wrong with some component (obviously). It's difficult to give you advice without knowing the trouble code. They sometimes put the trouble code on your paperwork (probably a Pxxxx, P followed by 4 numbers). If they did not, you can try called and asking what exactly the code was. If you have trouble getting the code, some Autozones will scan your codes for free, but you should call first. If you can get the code, we can try to give you some more advice.

    Here in California, you can't pass a smog/emissions test if you have any trouble codes stored, or if the readiness monitors are not set.

    I had the same problem, and I "reset the computer" by simply unplugging the battery for a few seconds, and then hooking it back up again. So far, no problems yet.

    how hi are your rpm's? this will sound stupid but i was having a real bad jerk, and hi rpm's. i it took to the shop. they couldn't figure it out. to make it short, it ended up being some floor mats that i placed over the originals that was causing my hi rpm's because it sat on top of gas pedal. once i adjusted them under the gas pedal rpm's went down and the car stopped jerking.
    hope this helps someone.
